The ultimest caboose in Canada is a  VIA Park car.
All VIA dome passenger cars are named after Canadian
national park, in addition to a number.
http://www.viarail.ca/en/about-via-rail/our-fleet/park-car
Only passengers having booked sleepers can ride this
rearmost car, which includes several amenities, least of 
all complimentary food and permission to access the 
end dome.
This photo of the Westbound Canadian was taken near 
Seebe AB, about 40 miles west of Calgary, in July 1989, 
before VIA abandoned all passenger through the area in 
January 1990.

Partial view of Kootenay Park,  looking rearward, down
the track. Passengers enjoy some free amenities, while
relaxing in comfort.
In former days, this parlour car was the smoking area.
Today the entire train, including the Park Car is totally
non-smoking. VIA has scheduled strategic stops every
4 hours or so, enabling passengers to detrain and 
smoke if they wish.
This picture was taken and submitted by Massey F. Jones
If they so desire, passengers traveling in sleeper 
accomodation can proceed inside the rear dome, anytime,
day or night. Many take advantage of the amenity after
dark, because it is an extremely peaceful place to gather
one's thoughts. This view shows the lit-up stairs leading
to the dome.

Our train had 4 dome cars. The midddle dome cars are 
called Skyline. The lower portion of the car is a snack bar.
Users are mostly day coach passengers and access to 
the dome is unrestricted day or night

Old railcars never die. The railcar car on the left is 
VIA 2448, photographed on June 19th, 2008 from a street
vantage point near Waterfront Station in Vancouver.
It is  one of five "Northern Spirit" cars used on the
VIA Rail "Hudson Bay" train between Winnipeg and Churchill
from 2000 to about 2006. Ridership wasn't as expected and the
train didn't survive the VIA Rail cutbacks. View excellent details 
about all 5 "Northern Spirit" cars, including the exterior  livery 
for each  car, all different. at http://blog.traingeek.ca/2011/10/via-rails-winnipeg-maintenance
-centre_23.htm
The 2448 had a large polar bear graphic applied to the sides.

The link mentions that the car was used as sleeping quarters
for the West Coast Express crews because their regular rooms
in the CPR station were closed for construction  and this may be
the case here as the car is hooked up electrically to a building.
Skytrain cars to the right are 007 still in its early tricolor 
scheme and 147 in white.  View a picture of the car, most
probably on the way to Ferromex in Mexico, as FXE 150004  http://www.flickr.com/photos/milwaukeebeernut/7231265164

 One of the cars in passenger train consists until the advent of 
"all-electric" heating was the steam generator, used to provide 
"on board" comfort during cold nights and all winter. For most 
of the 20th Century, passenger cars were heated by steam but
it became a problem, once diesel units took over and there was
no longer a guaranteed supply of steam at the head end from the locomotive.

Steam Generator Unit CN 15418 was built by the Canadian
Car & Foundry in 1956 and photographed here in Moncton 
NB, June 1975. It survived into the VIA Rail era with the 
same number but became painted in the VIA Rail livery of 
blue with two wide horizontal yellow stripes on each side. .

The unit is a bit unusual because it had square windows, 
whereas most had round porthole windows. Left of the unit
is probably a baggage car and ahead of the steam generator is
CN 3648, an MLW RS18 locomotive, one of 54, Class MR-18b (3617-3670), used on smaller runs. For longer runs, a cab unit 
"F-type" locomotive was usually at the head end and it/or a 
"B" Unit had a built-in steam generator.

STCUM ((English: Montreal Transit Corporation) Gallery
Car with cab 901 in "hockey mask", at Montreal West in the
mid-70s. This is one of a series of cars built in 1969 by
Canadian Vickers for commuter transport between downtown 
Montreal and the West Island (Vaudreuil - Dorion).
The orange booths are for passenger fare control at the 
crossing. The operation was run by the CPR from 
Windsor Station in downtown Montreal. 

The AMT (English: Metropolitan Transportation Agency)
became the umbrella operation commuter transport for 63 
communities in the Montreal area in 1996 and withdrew this
type of gallery car by end of summer 2010, replacing it with a 
newer type of bi-level on selected routes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agence_m%C3%A9tropolitaine

Here is a photo of "Le Railcar" in Vancouver's Gastown, taken in June 1988, during its life as a restaurant. 
The ex-CPR railway car was moved to Squamish BC;
restored to its original splendor inside
and it is now preserved as an operating showpiece at the 
West Coast Railway Heritage Park.

A word-for-word copy from http://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.
php?15,2358842
describes it all.

The Alberta was built in 1929 as one of a fleet of ten 
'superintendent' cars and was used across the country by 
Canadian Pacific until the late 1960's before being retired
from active service. It became the centrepiece of a small Gastown restaurant in the 1970's but after going out of business, reverted to CP Rail's Marathon Realty 
subsidiary and was eventually donated to the WCRA. 
It was shipped to our Heritage Park and after a number of years, a generous donor allowed us to completely 
rebuild the car. The original bedrooms were removed
when it became a restaurant, so the configuration
is now lounge, dining/board room and galley. 
The Alberta has been rebuilt to Transport Canada 
operating standards and will be available for future
charters etc.

View the WCRA website at http://www.wcra.org/

While it is not displayed in the Panorama Roundhouse in
this 360 degree video, it's almost safe to assume that it 
will be, because the it is now a showpiece. At the time the panoramic view was taken, restoration might have not 
have yet been completed "Alberta

One of the cars in the CPR "VIEW" series, at 
United Railway Supply, situated in north-end Montreal, 
August 1970. The company, a used locomotive
remanufacturer and reseller, no longer exists. It was 
located on the Cartierville (electrified) spur, off the Montréal-Deux-Montagnes (electrified) commuter line. 
A bit of the spur line track can be seen in the bottom right c
orner of the other picture.

CPR purchased 4 of the cars from the New York Central
(their Brook series until 1957, before being retired) Built 
in 1949 by the Budd Co. for the New York Central Railroad
as a 5 double bedroom, buffet, observation lounge, the cars 
were operated by the Pullman Company between Boston 
and Chicago.

Renamed respectively by the CPR in the "View" series 
(their NYC name in brackets) they were respectively Sea 
View (Babbling Brook); East View (Fall Brook); River View
(Plum Brook) and Mountain View (Singing Brook).  CPR
used 2 of the cars on Pool trains (a combined CN-CP 
passenger operation to maximize reduced passenger
loads for each railway), between Montreal and Toronto
and the other 2 cars in Pool Trains between Ottawa and
Toronto until CN and CP decided to operate passenger
service independently on their own tracks, later on.

 This picture was taken and submitted by Massey F. Jones  
Following the end of Pool Car service on Montreal-Toronto
and Ottawa-Toronto in 1969, CPR sold all 4 cars. Sea View 
and River View went to the Quebec Cartier Mining Company
in Northern Quebec where they were used as business cars
by company executives. Sea View lost its name and became
renumbered Cartier #847 and River View became Cartier #846.

In 1986, Cartier Mining sold their #847 into the US, where it 
was refitted to Amtrak standards and regained its original name
of Babbling Brook. A couple of re-sales later, the passenger ca
r is still active and occasionally used on the mainline by the new 
owners. http://www.webbrail.com/history  Cartier #846 was also
sold into the US and regained its name of Plum Brook.

Another CPR car of the same style, the Mountain View
(ex-NYC Singing Brook) ended up on the Algoma Central 
as their Canyon View (#551). See it in their Steelton yard. http://www.cnrphotos.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=74488
It was sold in 1984 into private US ownership and the name
Canyon View given to an ACR caboose that was transformed
into a fully equipped camp car. http://www.agawacanyontourtrain.com/content/tours/canyonview/

CPR BUSINESS CAR # 71 KILLARNEY was built in

East Coast Railway in Feb 1918, being the second CPR 
car to carry that name. 

KILLARNEY is now regularly used as a crew car within
the Royal Canadian Pacific luxury train but we see it here
resting in front of the station at Banff AB in June 1988,
a few years before it became part of that consist (in 2000).

Railway Post Office Car 401807 at the Calgary Industria
Yard (opposite Fort Calgary) on 9 Dec 2012;  awaiting
transport to its new home at the Galt Historic Railway 
Park, in Stirling, Alberta. http://galtrailway.com/home/

Built in 1914 by the CPR Angus Shops in Montreal as
CPR Railway Post Office Car #3774, is was in service 
until 1959, before being converted to Work Service 
#404901 and later renumbered to Work Service # 401807. 

RPO cars were always coupled to passenger trains.
Inside the car, postal employees sorted "First Class Mail"
by hand while the train was in motion between large cities,
resulting in "Same Day" or overnight service. From about 
1950, most mail ceased to be carried by rail between cities 
and went either by air cargo or road. RPO cars lost then their
purpose and most were sold, scrapped or put to some other 
use by the railways such as this one.

Sometime in the 1920s, open platform cars lost favour 
with the travelling public because they didn't provide 
protection from rain and snow. The Pullman Car Company's
answer was to build an enclosed solarium car which could
be air conditioned in the summer (with ceiling fans) and 
heated in the winter. The car features a few bedrooms
and was the height of luxury, much like the PARK  dome 
cars  are the tail end of VIA trains today.

This one, obviously in action, was possibly photographed 
somewhere in Northern Ontario where Massey's late
father-in law was stationed for some years with the RCAF. 
Massey acquired his slide collection. Due to poor camera
quality, the number cannot be picked out.

Car 141, brought out of its indoor storage for Railway Days.
It was first built in July 1907, at the CPR Angus Shops in 
Montreal as a CPR as an obscure passenger coach in the fleet,
before being reborn as CPR 141 July 1952, and then
converted to Work Car 411585 in 1973, before being 
donated in 1980 to Calgary's Heritage Park, who restored it. 

It's in very good condition but not normally run around 
the park except for these two days, late September http://www.heritagepark.ca/special-events/railwayDays.php

Car 141 started life as a commuter train in Montreal before used
on ski trains to the Laurentians.As you can see, it has reversible 
rattan seats. Then it became work car DAR411585
The car operated around Kentville for quite a while, before being requisitioned for the CBC series "The National Dream".
Then then fixed it up and it eventually came to 
Heritage Park in 1980, after touring throughout Canada 
with some exhibits

Rod told me the following about this picture.
"I recently came into possession of my maternal
grandfather's obituary, Roderick Livingstone. Rod
spent most of his career working forDOSCO and spent his 
last years as Car Shop Foreman/Supervisor in Glace Bay,
Nova Scotia, where I was born. In the obit, it was mentioned 
that one of the projects he supervised was the building of
a baggage - express car for the Sydney & Louisburg 
Railway (1928/29 ) and with the help of two books I have, and
pictures and input from Jim Simmons, it looks like the
car was #9, she looks functional  but not pretty! 
Never the less, it is so great to have a picture and some
documentation of a railway project than involved my maternal 
Grandfather who I never knew - helps to explain that 
Railroading may indeed be in the genes  - I have long known
that my paternal grandfather was involved In Railroading since
he was the General Foreman, Mechanical Dept. for the
Panama Railway when they were constructing the Panama Canal."
