I am positive pretty sure I was expecting the Orient Express, with deep navy blue velvet drapes on all of the windows, and white tablecloths and fine silver in the dining car, while a suited waiter took our lunch orders. (I know. You have to remember that I live in Traceyville for the most part, and not the real world...)
We first took our seats in the business class car, (which, if like me, you haven't ridden a train before, was much like boarding an airplane, with far more aisle and leg room) and we decided to check out the dining car as soon as the train left our station. We actually ended up sitting in the dining car the entire three hour ride while we rode the rails, because there were huge windows, with tables and booth seating, and enjoyed mimosas and a bag of potato chips.
(Again...I know. The hot dogs from the Cafe Cart on the train just didn't look enticing enough for us, so we opted to eat a late lunch once we got to Seattle.)
We will most likely be bringing a picnic lunch for the ride home on Saturday, and looking forward to being able to sit and visit the entire was back to Vancouver in the dining car once again.
