WHISTLER TOURIST TRAIN WILL BE  CHUGGING SOON - an upscale tourist train called the Whistler Mountaineer, comes from Rocky Mountaineer Vacations, hopes to have its first three-hour scenic run from North Vancouver to the Whistler Resort by May 1st.

The company is expecting to ferry 36,000 guests in the first year on the Whistler Mountaineer.  Also, Rocky Mountaineer Vacations is adding a third route to their popular Rocky Mountaineer trip which will begin in Whistler and take guests to Jasper.

Together, these trains are projected to have an economic impact in the resort of $15 million in 2006 and rising to  $40 million by our Olympic year 2010!
