DAY 6  This morning, board the Rocky Mountaineer westbound (Jasper Train Stations).  The Rocky Mountaineer is all daylight travel and is one of the most dramatic train trips in the World.  Service by on-board multi-lingual attendants is superb.  You will travel through rugged terrain and see Massive Mount Robson, Pyramid Falls, and cross over the Great Divide. Roll on through the Rocky Mountain and Selkirk Mountain ranges to the city of Kamloops.  We stop and transfer to our hotel for the night.
