VIA's New Passenger Cars - Food service car

Service cars include a lounge area, a galley for food and drink storage, a baggage area, and an office where staff can monitor and control the train's key operating systems. In addition, each service car includes a special compartment designed for passengers with disabilities. An office intended for use by European customs officers will be removed to make more room for other purposes.

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.
