Depends on the route, check the CP and CN freq listings. "GCRC has agreements with Canadian National Railway (CN) and Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) which grant GCRC access to track and infrastructure required for our operations. CN and CPR provide crews". CP was on 161.475 and CN 161.415 last time I recall. They used a separate train to dispatch freq for call in but I never monitored it while on Via 1 and 2. I have no clue as to an on board freq that may be used on the train for crew use. There is also a route on the former BC rail now CN from N Vancouver to Quesnel. This site has Specific CN and CP freqs by location .

These are my loggings from way back,
F1-151.595
F2-162.300
F3-167.28
Uhf-453.3375 +453.6375,458.6625 + 469.2625 was a Canada wide listing (guest services)
those were specific to on the train, other national ones we heard as well.

These are the frequencies listed in ISED for Great Canadian Railtour Co. Ltd which I believe runs the Mountaineer. 151.595 in Alberta, specifically Calgary is licensed to a cement company so probably wouldn't be used. I don't specifically monitor Rail frequencies, but I did hear the Mountaineer calling last year on one of the usual CP rail frequencies.
