VIA 7601 on The Ocean         
Via 7003 Renaissance Class Transition car built by Metropolitan-Cammell in England. •These cars were specially created for VIA Rail. They were designed to let passengers aboard the Ocean access their bedrooms in the Park car, at the rear of the train. •This transition car is equipped with a standard coupler at one end that allows the addition of a Park car, as well as a second coupler at the other end to add Renaissance cars to the rest of the consist. Cars have been finished inside with carpeted floors and walls, and feature painted scenes of the Maritimes along the walls. All Transition cars were originally baggage cars, and were rebuilt from sleeper car shells.
