The Train of Le Massif de Charlevoix Inauguration

The Train of Le Massif de Charlevoix, which will be put into service in September, 9th, will be the only train in the world visitors will enjoy most because it will travel about 140 km between Québec City and La Malbaie. The tour of the Train of Le Massif de Charlevoix will pass by very beautiful rivers, mountains and seashores. The Train of Le Massif de Charlevoix journey is about 7 hours long, when travelers will admire rare exposure to breathtaking vistas, discovering the region’s history, its culture and hidden treasures over a lunch fragrant with regional flavours, and entertained with a multimedia presentation. The Train of Le Massif de Charlevoix consists of entirely restored railcars transformed into genuine panoramic vehicles. The train will accommodate 272 passengers, who will be also delighted by the gastronomy adventure – a three-course gourmet lunch and a lovely four-course dinner. By late Fall 2011, eight refurbished railcars will accommodate a total of 528 passengers.
