Pacific Central (Vancouver)
Canada

Wikipedia: " Pacific Central Station in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is a railway station which acts as the western terminus of Via Rail's cross-country The Canadian to Toronto and the northern terminus of Amtrak’s Cascades to Seattle.

Pacific Central Station is adjacent to the Vancouver SkyTrain Main Street – Science World Station. Westbound trains go into downtown near hotels, businesses and other attractions. End of the line is at Waterfront Station (formerly the Canadian Pacific station), offering connections to the Seabus, West Coast Express commuter trains, and other bus lines. Eastbound locals head into the suburbs, such as Burnaby and New Westminster.

The station also provides intercity coach service, being the head office and bus depot of Pacific Coach Lines and the main Vancouver terminal for Greyhound Canada. Also Malaspina bus, which serves the Sunshine Coast communities of Gibsons, Sechelt and Powell River. The station is wheelchair-accessible and is staffed with full Via services.

The Amtrak Cascades provides two round trips from Vancouver. One goes to Seattle, Washington; the other continues on to Portland, Oregon. Rather than stopping for an immigration inspection at the border, as happens with the Adirondack to Montreal and Maple Leaf to Toronto, Amtrak passengers go through Canadian customs at the station upon arrival. Passengers bound for the United States go through United States border preclearance prior to boarding in Vancouver.

The Rocky Mountaineer operated from Pacific Central Station until moving to the nearby Rocky Mountaineer Station in 2005.

The Rocky Mountaineer Plans to use the Pacific Central Station again for their new Coastal Passage route in 2013. The Pacific Central Station will be used for the international trip section between Vancouver and Seattle. While the route section between Vancouver to Jasper and Banff will operate out of the Rocky Mountaineer Station."

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
