The rear platform will comfortably acommo- date a dozen or more people. The cars, which are lighted by electricity and perfectly ventilated, are not only' -handsomely designed but substantial- ly built, and elegantly appointed, and the exquisite tintings and decorations pleasingly harmonize, but they afford additional resting places for the sleep ing car passengers, for whose use and comfort they are especially intended. Four of these cars are already in com mission and will temporarily run in the Canadian Rockies. In about a fortnight a sufficient number will be ready to equip the Imperial Limited trains, and in about a month the Atlantic and Pacific expresses will al- so have them attached.
