They seemed to be have the airconditioning on freezing, but the conductor was very happy to provide an extra blanket. Once again I slept to the gentle rocking motion and occasional whistles. I even slept through the adding of new carriages. I awoke to the absolutely amazing beauty of the Montana Glacier National Park – mountains, gorges, rivers – and even a commentary along the way.
The sleeper car had a shower – so I enjoyed that start to the day, and got in late to breakfast, which mean there was not too much pressure to move on. After this the flatlands of Montana – crops for hundreds of miles.
This two day trip was great and only took 2 days – we arrived less than an hour late, crossing two times zones.
