I thought folks might appreciate a picture I took of one of VIA rail's Park Cars coupled to the protect coaches at Pacific Central Station

Technically the caption on that image wrong; that Park Car is not one of the Prestige Parks that are used on The Canadian, but is rather a normal Park car, and would be used on Train 5/6 ("The Skeena"/"Rupert Rocket"), of which there's 2 sets needed for its operation. Periodically a car is cycled to Vancouver through Jasper on VIA #1 at which time maintenance is performed. And then shipped back on #2.

You can tell by the colour of the stripe on the car and/or by the size of the windows.
