View From The Dome Car
One of the best seats on VIA Rail's The Canadian is in the Dome Car; there's nothing else quite like it.
(A close second is the Panorama Car, which is added to the train for its trip through the Rockies.)
If there's no other reason for you to take a train trip in Canada, sitting in the Dome Car would be sufficient.
Watching Canada pass by, seeing meets with freights, watching as the signals are knocked down at dusk--that is the quintessential Canadian passenger train experience.
The panorama photo above, taken on my recent trip from Melville, Sask. to Winnipeg, hardly does it justice. But enjoy it all the same.
