(07d) Westbound Ocean - Evangeline Park car at Moncton, NB - May 8th
Evangeline Park car #8704 -
All Park cars are named after parks.
Park car number 8709 carries the name "Laurentide" on one side, and "Laurentides" on the other.
When VIA Rail no longer had use for the Sibley car, it was donated to the Canadian Railway Museum (Exporail) in Delson.
The Riding Mountain Park car was sold in 2004, and is currently in the United States... with its original CP colors restored.
The lights on the back of car number 8715 are reversed: on one side, the red light is placed above the green light, and on the other side, the green light is placed on top.
These cars are always found at the end of the Canadian and the Jasper-Prince Rupert, but during the summer, they may also be found at the end of the Ocean and occasionally, the Winnipeg-Churchill as well.
Each room is equipped with private washroom, which includes a sink and toilet. (from: VIA Rail site)
