Movie makers George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola went on a mammoth trip this summer - a 2,719 mile train ride across Canada. Lucas, the maker of the Star Wars saga, and Coppola, director of The Godfather series and Apocalypse Now, rented a vintage train for the six- day vacation which cost the heavyweight pair upwards of $600,000. The duo, friends for more than 30 years, left Toronto on August 13 with their families on the chartered Royal Canadian Pacific train for the week-long trip to Vancouver. The train features three luxury cars with four bedrooms and three members of staff per passenger.
