7 feet 7 inches answered my question. 12 feet seems to be the external width of Indian loading gauge - which is the widest gauge network of the world.

BASTARDS! They charge Indian nationals almost half the price, the golden chariot at least. Damn, those are pricey. Much more expensive than the Cross Canada train trip for example, admittedly they don't offer the same luxury.

Are these images consistent with a bedroom 230 cm wide containing 2 beds 90 cm wide each and an aisle 50 cm wide?

Hardly. That would leave 2 feet for the width of corridor plus the thickness of three walls.

What service does this canada train offer? because these trains don't just charge for the fare of the train but include tickets,transportation to all the monuments, heritage sites as well.

Wow, thank you, that helps a lot.

It still looks so much bigger in picture though....

How much is it to ride this thing? In dollars? 1000? 2000?
