The train, originally built in 1955, was renovated in 1985 to be used for daily trips in the Washington and Orlando areas until 1994. Since then, the trains have been used sporadically for routes throughout North America.

Montrealers will get their chance to enjoy the scenic experience starting at the end of September. Train fares vary depending on dates and chosen route.
