Train Winnipeg to Edmonton. Last part of my train trip

Sunset in the prairies


Had a lovely stay in Winnipeg with Evelyn and Duane

Toronto - Winnipeg. Travelling on Halloween

Enjoying the view from the dome car

This guy was greeting the guests for Halloween in the dining car, and scared each and everyone of us..

I liked the sleeping berth, it felt like when I was a child and used to build small houses with tables and sheets.

Train from New York to Toronto

Hudson River

Henry Hudson looks like the Norwegian Priest and writer Petter Dass

Traveling by train is a pleasant way of crossing borders

Border Police on it's way

The train from Toronto to Winnipeg was delayed, so VIARAIL treated us with a night's stay at the Fairmont, it was quite nice

not too shabby...
