No. VIA Rail (Canadian) goes from Vancouver to Edmonton Alberta, but not to Calgary. You can go from Seattle to Vancouver on Amtrak (US railways) twice a day. However Edmonton < > Calgary is by bus (around 3 hours.) Overall the train trip will take around 27 hours, plus layover time at Vancouver.

Flying is obviously fast and cheaper than the train - 90 min. and US$150 one way.

Hi, you could take Amtrak to Vancouver then Via Rail to Jasper. There is a shuttle service from Jasper to Calgary via


You might also try Brewster bus

other option would be to go to Vancouver then take Rocky Mountaineer train which goes to Banff and continues onto Calgary. I do this several times a yr.
