 Historical railways and nostalgia at Central Station.  The Southern Aurora was the overnight service Sydney to Melbourne, 956ks, 1962-86. The arrangments was of sleeper rooms, lounge cars and a dining carriage with tables, white tablecloths and all the rest
Progress? On a recent journey the overnight first class service had a brown paper bag delivered containing the items for breakfast.  Maccas has set the standard!

It looks quite comfortable.

Regarding your comment, our VIA rail system has several different routes across the country, from Halifax on the East Coast to Vancouver in the West. There's a line that runs as far north as Churchill, Manitoba, on the shore of Hudson Bay, and a pretty scenic route from Jasper, Alberta, to Prince Rupert on the BC coast. They're different from the main routes, anyway.
