Personal comfort — to the "nth degree" — is the keynote of the new
Canadian Pacific stainless steel sleeping cars. They even have such
homelike touches as framed pictures in the private accommodation.
Beds disappear in the daytime and compact, comfortable bedrooms become
spacious apartments with well-uphoSstered movable chairs.  Each
Drawing Room has a full-length sofa, too, large picture window, triple-
mirrored dressing table — wash basin combination and private toilet
annex. You may control your own heat, ventilation and air-conditioning to
your own comfort.
For the "luxury of economy" the

Canadian decor — from hand-painted murals by 18 famous artists to carved glass and

these new Canadian Pacific cars from anything in the ken of the most travelled.

"Park" Scenic-Dome observation-lounge sleeping cars, named for famous Canadian parks
portrayed in their decorative schemes, have three lounges — the 24-seat all-round-
vision upper level "dome"; the Main Lounge — windowed on three sides, and the intimate "Mural Lounge", featuring a 20-foot canvas mural of one of 18 Canadian parks.
Etched glass and hand-carved linoleum panels depict flora of the parks. Service is from
a gaily decorated bar. In the "Main Lounge"a map of the park painted in oils is featured.
Wall to wall carpet and blending draperies are all special exclusive designs in which
the Canadian motif is continued.

"Skyline" is the car designation for another Canadian Pacific "first" in Canadian transcontinental
travel — the deluxe scenic-dome coffee shop coach. The 24-seat upper level dome embodies air-
conditioned controlled temperature and foam-cushioned seats as in the "Park" domes.
Full-colour animated tourist maps, the history of Canadian transportation, and legislative buildings
across the Dominion are rendered in carved, coloured linoleum panels. Photographic murals of Canadian scenes embody the Canadian theme in decoration.
All passengers on the train can enjoy popular-priced meals and snacks in the Coffee Shop, furnished with
curved settees and tables.
Reserved, fully adjustable seats with full-length leg-rests seat 26 passengers in the forward section. There
are ample toilet facilities.
