V/Line travel to and from Melbourne is improving all the time…
…with our rolling stock proudly made in Victoria.
Pre-pandemic we celebrated our wedding anniversary…
…with dinner aboard the Q Train…
…in our first-class cabin
Our next train adventure was a bit more modern
than the Old Queenslander…
…a real Red Carpet treatment on both mornings
and umbrellas to keep the rain off
as we boarded the second morning…
…and it was always expected that Canada’s
would be something special.
Again we treated ourselves to the
Gold Leaf experience.
The Gold Leaf
cars are on two levels.
Upstairs, guests are seated and view the passing countryside
in the most comfortable train seats possible…
All dining is on the bottom level of Gold Leaf…
…while we were told that meals were brought to where guests
were seated in Silver Leaf carriages.
The difference between carriages is clear in the above photo.
Single versus double-deck carriages and
no rooftop viewing in Silver Leaf.
