A Rocky Mountaineer deluxe passenger train roars across the Anderson River on the Canadian Pacific main near Boston Bar, British Columbia on May 21, 2015. In the background is the Fraser River. The Rocky Mountaineer began as a once-weekly Via Rail train which operated between Vancouver BC and Jasper, Alberta. This service began on June 9, 1988 and was called the “Canadian Rockies by Daylight”. To maximize scenic views, this service operated only during the day, with an overnight stop in Kamloops. Trains departed Vancouver on Sundays, with trains to Jasper and Calgary (by way of Banff) departing Kamloops on Monday mornings. On June 4, 1989, VIA began its second season of the service, renaming the service the “Rocky Mountaineer”. Scheduling remained the same as the previous season. The final runs of the Rocky Mountaineer under VIA operation departed Calgary and Jasper on October 12, 1989. After the end of VIA Rail service in 1990, the Rocky Mountaineer name was sold to Vancouver businessman Peter R.B. Armstrong's Armstrong Hospitality Group Ltd. It ran its first train on May 27, 1990. These trains became very popular, with over one million passengers since 1990. In August 2021 the Rocky Mountaineer began a new daytime operation between Denver, Colorado and Moab, Utah.
