    Crossing Canadian border with food and beverage?

    Is there any issues with customs on the train? We plan on bringing some food items and a bottle of wine for the train but I wasn’t sure there would be a customs issue and I don’t want to do it if it will be confiscated or something. Thanks for any input!

    Sleeper meals

    My kids loved the freedom to order anything off the menu. We all had steak one night. The staff was very nice and gave them whatever they wanted.

    Weather/temps on the California Zephyr in April & other questions

    I will be traveling with kids (8-10 year range) in April from Chicago to California. We will have bedrooms but I want to make sure we are prepared and comfortable. What will the temp on the train be like in the mountains? Should I pack a throw blanket or two? Also, is there likely to be a bunch...
