and other
EQUIPMENT The Economy of Luxury
Personal comfort has been carried to the nth degree in the new
Canadian Pacific sleeping cars — even to such home-like touches
as framed pictures in the private accommodation!
Completely disappearing beds turn comfortable sleeping rooms into
spacious daytime apartments with comfortable, movable chairs.
The Drawing Room boasts a full-length sofa, too, large picture
window, triple-mirrored wash-basin with folding dressing-table
top and private toilet annex.
Heat, ventilation and air-conditioning may be individually controlled —
or automatically monitored.
Drawing-rooms of "Park" and "Chateau" Cars are spacious self-contained apartments by day, luxurious   bedrooms
for three by night.
"Music's golden tongue" — Wired programmes of music are available for
individual selection in the private accommodation of 'The Canadian".
Loud-speakers also convey train announcements and scenic commentary.
'Bedrooms en  suite"  become large living  rooms by day and accommodate  families  or
business groups in privacy by night.
For single or double occupancy, Compartments in the "Manor"  Car, with disappearing  beds,
private toilet and triple-mirror wash-basin — dressing table, spell travel luxury.
For the "luxury of economy", Canadian Pacific's new stainless-steel sleeping
cars are "modern as tomorrow"! You have ten choices: Drawing Room, Compartment, Two Bedrooms en suite, Bedroom, Roomette, Duplex-roomette,
Section, Lower-berth, fully-adjustable seat with full-length leg-rests — all re
served exclusively for your comfort!
Compartments, too, include toilet annex, triple-mirror dressing-table, washbasin combination, three easy movable chairs, modern decor — privacy
by day or night —- room to entertain.
Business travel? Conferences en route? Family travel? Bedrooms en
suite are the answer! Two separate self-contained rooms by
night and — thanks to a sliding partition — a spacious apartment
by day with two wash-basins, two toilet annexes, four comfortable chairs, two picture windows, two disappearing beds in each room.
And, like every other private space they offer pastel-plastic walls and ceilings,
shaver outlets,  plenty of controllable  lights,  luxurious carpets,  airfoam
mattresses, snowy linen, and the acme of personal service — Canadian
Pacific service!

routes Canadian Pacific All-Steel, Modern Parlour and .Sleeping

Glare-proof glass all around makes the air-conditioned upper level Scenic Domes of the "Park" Observation-Lounge and
"Skyline" Coffee Shop Cars ideal for transcontinental sight seeing.
On "The Canadian" and "The Dominion" across Canada by the famous Banff-
Lake Louise Route through the Canadian Rockies between Montreal-Vancouver and
Toronto-Vancouver ... the only Dome trains in Canada . . . you really enjoy the newest
in the economy of luxury — the luxury of economy in quiet, comfortable all-stainless-steel
streamlined cars.
Canadian decor — from hand-painted murals by 18 famous artists to carved glass and
linoleum representations of Canada's flpra and fauna — from coloured maps to carefully
selected pictures in private sleeping accommodation — distinguishes the design of
these new Canadian Pacific cars from anything in the ken of the most travelled.

"Skyline" Coffee Shop coaches with upper level Scenic D,omes serve tasty low-priced meals and snacks.
Reserved,  reclining  seats  with  full-length  leg-rests — highlight  economical travel  in  the  deluxe coaches  on
"The Canadian" and "The Dominion".
"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 1 8 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.
Named for famous rooms in Canadian Pacific hotels, the stainless-steel dining room cars are distinctive.
Ceilings depict the night sky, wall finish is in plastic with bright mouldings. Illuminated glass partitions feature
etchings of Canadian birds. Provincial flowers are represented in hand carved linoleum and mirror etchings.
Decorative crests are featured on end walls. Distinctive Canadian dishes are features of the famous Canadian
Pacific cuisine.
In the streamlined, air-conditioned deluxe coaches all seats are fully adjustable and have full-length leg-
rests. Foam cushions accentuate comfort in any position. Plastic wall and ceiling treatment, carved linoleum
panels, wainscot heating, washrooms and powder rooms point up the economy of luxury. The Luxury of Economy
"Luxury" and "economy" are well matched in the accommodation available for budget
travellers. Complete privacy, day and night, is provided in the smart, new Roomettes
and Duplex-Roomettes. Foam rubber disappearing beds, wide
seats with arm-rests, individual washing and toilet facilities,
wide windows, temperature and air.-conditioning controls and
full carpets are outstanding features of these intimate single
modern travel apartments.
