VIA's New Passenger Cars - Restroom

Sleeper cars have ten 2-berth bedrooms, all with en-suite full retention toilets. Six of the bedrooms have showers. All bedrooms are equipped with a clothes valet, coffee maker, seating for three people, storage for luggage, an intercom system, room service call phones, and a smoke/fire detector. The doors can be locked by passengers for security when they are not in the room.

VIA is purchasing 139 passenger cars designed for 200-kph business, overnight and one-night sleeper service. The purchase includes 72 Sleeper cars, 47 Coaches, and 20 Service cars. All cars have modern, clean appointments, with exteriors similar to VIA's existing LRC 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.
