Canada's Via Rail Is Giving Out Free "Coast To Coast" Passes

There's nothing quite like the old-school romance of taking a long train ride. A big part of a trip is the journey getting there, and few modes of transport can compete with the experience of riding a train.

Sure - you could hop on a short flight to get to your destination, but all your going to see is a bunch of clouds until you reach your point B. Taking a plane feels like hopping into a transporter, whereas taking a train truly makes you feel like your on a journey.

Via Rail has all kinds of great deals and promotions - especially for students - to try and promote railway travel. And you can practically get anywhere in Canada on a train.

This year Via Rail is turning 40 and to celebrate they are offering a very special contest. Via Rail has repurposed the steel from a retired train wagon and transformed them into 40 very special tickets that are all up for grabs, all you have to do is enter the draw!

The winning prize: a coast to coast ride (or to any destination) in Via Rails Revolutionary and one-of-a-kind Panoramic cars.

The windows stretch from floor to ceiling so you can experience and take-in the Canadian landscape in all its glory. A little preview, check the image below.
