VIA's New Passenger Cars - Exterior View

VIA Rail Canada is purchasing 139 new passenger cars from ALSTOM. This investment in new passenger rail equipment for Canada's national passenger rail system is worth approximately $125 million dollars. This is the first major purchase of passenger rail cars in more than 20 years. The new equipment will expand VIA's total passenger fleet by one third.

The equipment consists of a number of car types: coaches, sleeping cars and restaurant service cars. These new cars were built in the mid-90s by ALSTOM for "Nightstar" service by European Nightstock Services, a consortium of five European railways, but for a number of reasons never went into service.
