I just booked a ticket from Halifax to Montréal and got seat 7C assigned. I do know that this train ran with a 2+1 seat setting in their Economy wagons in the past. So I am wondering if I would have a single seat. Unfortunately I cannot find any diagram here or here.

Did anyone ride this train recently and knows if 7C is a single seat? Is it AB + C or A + BC?

  • The picture on Seat 61 shows a 2+1 configuration, so AB + C seems likely. I suppose it's possible, though, that seat A is on the right-hand side of the train, or that there are other cars with the opposite configuration. Jul 23, 2019 at 12:08

It's annoying to find, but there's a link to Seat Numbering on the sidebar when booking a ticket. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to match up with your seat number.

As to the Renaissance cars, there are 16 rows in both classes. Seats A are window seats, B are aisle seats and S are single seats.

The French language site also has a diagram suggesting that the seat numbering system is AB+S.

From this I'd speculate that your "C" seat is equivalent to the single "S" seat.

    Thank you very much for your answer! Unfortunately it's not a single seat. See my answer.

Unfortunately it's not a single seat. I asked Via Rail through their Twitter account, it seems that they also have wagons with 2+2 settings on this route.
