Four of us travelled from Prince Rupert to Jasper on the Skeena Train. It was the quirkiest train trip ever. There were very few of us on the train, mostly Brits and there was almost a party like atmosphere for the whole trip. The staff were wonderful and kept us informed of interesting things along the route. The engineer alerted us to wildlife and we stopped a few times and got off the train. We stopped at Penny, a 5 person community with a post office. We dropped off some orange juice to a hermit who lives along the line. The food was adequate, the company great, tea, coffee, fruit, biscuits and muffins freely available. Keep $12 handy to buy the train whistle. You need to be aware that train does not always keep to schedule. They are at the mercy of the commercial trains and have to get into sidings when these take priority. Don't be put off - an experience not to be missed and of course terrific scenery.
