The description states:

The Algoma Central Railway Wilderness Tour, out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, takes the traveller through some of the most spectacular scenery in North America.

–The presence of at least eight passenger coaches for the scheduled train indicates a very popular attraction. In fact, the trains can be between 20 and 24 cars long.
