"All aboard!" chorus the Rocky Mountaineer staff loudly as the train hoots in sync in a slightly cheesy way. Passengers are invited to make their way to their seats. The Rocky Mountaineer is getting ready to depart.

Our original plan was to go to one of the art galleries, however time was running slightly low so we went to see the Book of Kells at Trinity College instead.
