The American Orient Express began its 2003 season of Canadian runs with a June 11 Departure from Vancouver to Montreal.

Photos seen here as it was passing through Surrey, B.C. My location for photos was to obtain detailed photos of the complete passenger car set, so these are not scenic shots by any means. Train moved at a very fast pace so hard to catch at a couple of locations but here are the cars. Seemed to move faster then my shutter finger as well.

This is a welcome addition for passengers having a dome car seat, now 2 domes are on the train. In the past there were no dome cars.
