Ride the Steel Rails was a fun trip. Lots of beautiful scenery on the train trip. The van ride back to Jaspar was full of side trips and good conversation. Would highly recommend this activity for anyone visiting the Jaspar area.

My wife and I really enjoyed our day on the Skeena railway - the organisation was spot on. There weren't very many passengers on the train on the day that we went so we were allowed to view the awesome landscape from the observation car - drinks on board too, what more could you ask for. The couriers were informative during the trip and pointed out the main points of interest. The driver who took us back to Jasper gave a geography lesson on the way home and we stopped off at the lovely Robson Park information centre. It was a great day and a welcome change to be able to sit back and let someone else do the driving. If you are thinking of taking the Rocky Mountaineer train I think this would be a good way to get a taster first.

The ride was comfortable, informative Thank you Tracy and the weather was fairly co-operative. Chuck drove us back from the drop off point and was a wealth of information about the mountains, and historical features of the railroad. My only 'disappointment' really, was that the tracks follow the highway so closely, that the views were not really 'new'. I guess I was hoping for a deeper trip into the back country to see views that you can't see from the highways. It was a good way to spend an afternoon though, and something 'different' to do in Jasper. I have recommended this to others.
