    A Covid 'Atlantic Bubble' Road Trip (& some Trains too!)

    The 'Ocean'......First Run! (with photos)

    Thanks for the update. I grew up a few minutes drive from Marble. My mom and my wife’s parents still live there so we get out often to ski. My dad worked with CN until our railroad closed in 1988 and we often used his pass to travel to Ottawa to visit family. I took many summer trips throughout...

    Are there any lounge cars to hang out in on the Halifax to Montreal route or is one confined to your room for the entire trip? Is the skyline similar to the upstairs seating area on the Park Car?
