Rocky Mountaineer, Vancouver

4.3
Rocky Mountaineer Station in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a railway station which acts as the western terminus of the Rocky Mountaineer train service to Jasper, Banff and Calgary. Prior to 2005, the Vancouver terminus for the Rocky Mountaineer was the Pacific Central Station.
The station was originally built for Canadian National Railway as a locomotive repair shed. At a cost of $4M CDN, the building was renovated by Rocky Mountaineer Rail Tours into a railway station, with the first train departing on April 17, 2005.
In February 2010, the east and west facades were updated with large signage identifying this structure as 'Alberta Station,' replacing the words 'Rocky Mountaineer Station.' The building reverted to its 'Rocky Mountaineer' signs the first week of March 2010. The temporary signage change was related to the government of Alberta leasing a Rocky Mountaineer train for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

  • Rocky Mountaineer staff including contract services such as security are all great. Very friendly and helpful. I interacted with them as a co-worker of sorts (I work for a different Railroad) so I wasn't a customer but I hear great things from customers as well regarding their excursion trains. To give you an idea of how the staff is I had just finished some work on a locomotive and was standing with I believe the general manager and he asked us if we could wave to the passengers on the train as they're leaving the station because that's what they do I thought that was really cool for him to ask us and to want us to do that.
  • First Class!! Highly recommended!! Wonderful trip through Rockies and BC. Can't praise the train, the scenery, the staff looking after us, the food, the refreshments enough!! First Class!!!
