Thanks for posting the review. It is refreshing to read a railfan's report on a Renaissance train that is not the usual: "Renaissance is nothing but junk and I can't say a good word about it" as we so often read. I won't say Renaissance is perfect - far from it - but after about two dozen sleeper trips and almost as many day trips in VIA 1, I like them a lot. My wife and I will not share one Ren. room, however, because of the very narrow upper berth. But a second room is a very reasonably-priced splurge. The single supplement on Ren. rooms is only 15% as opposed to 50% on the Budd sleeper double bedrooms (or cabins to use VIA's new terminology.)
