Touring Canada by train is one of the most elegant ways to see the country. Virtually all of Canada's major cities are connected by railroad and passenger rail travel is enjoying renewed popularity. From gourmet service in the Rocky Mountaineer's custom-designed GoldLeaf Dome Coach to a trip back to a gentler era on the vintage cars of the Royal Canadian Pacific, romance of the rails is alive and well in Canada.
