A railway carriage with large windows designed to provide a good view of passing scenery.
- Vintage carriages (restored at a cost of $15 million) include two dining cars, two club cars, a 1948 rear observation car, and Pullman sleeping cars (compartments have twin berths and enclosed toilets).
- The open observation car was originally Canadian Pacific, used in British Columbia.
- The lightning show was spectacular, though the cold shower pouring in between each car discouraged us from traveling to the observation car to watch.
