Rocky Mountaineer Station in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a railway station which acts as the western terminus of the Rocky Mountaineer train service to Jasper, Banff and Calgary. Prior to 2005, the Vancouver terminus for the Rocky Mountaineer was the Pacific Central Station.
The station was originally built for Canadian National Railway as a locomotive repair shed. At a cost of $4M CDN, the building was renovated by Rocky Mountaineer Rail Tours into a railway station, with the first train departing on April 17, 2005.
In February 2010, the east and west facades were updated with large signage identifying this structure as 'Alberta Station,' replacing the words 'Rocky Mountaineer Station.' The building reverted to its 'Rocky Mountaineer' signs the first week of March 2010. The temporary signage change was related to the government of Alberta leasing a Rocky Mountaineer train for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

  • Poor value for money. They promise Queen Anne quality but deliver Mary Anne ordinary. The train was air conditioned to a temperature that suited the staff working, but left the passengers too cold...

  • Awesome, you must try and do it if you can. Train amazing, food out of this world, views just took your breath away. Staff and guides did a great job, considering it was the first run of the year and lots of new staff to Train. A special shout out to Jason who is a true asset to the Rocky Mountaineer.
  • What an absolutely spectacular venue to host a wedding function. I attended my cousin’s wedding reception here over the weekend and I was blown away. The venue allows for ample space for outdoor cocktail hour and an immensely large space for indoor set up. The washrooms are conveniently located and the staff did a tremendous job in ensuring guests were taken care of. ✅✅✅✅✅
