Special Opportunities

   On occasion we are required to reposition our rail cars from their home facility to another location on the Amtrak or VIA Rail Canada routes to commence a private charter. During these repositioning movements, the rail cars normally travel without passengers onboard. These "repositioning moves" can provide for a one time luxury rail experience at a greatly reduced cost if your party is willing to travel on short notice to the "repositioning" destination.

   For example, should a client request a charter from Chicago to New Orleans and the requested rail car is based in the San Francisco, CA bay area, there would be the opportunity to enjoy a private rail car experience on the set date of repositioning travel from Emeryville, CA to Chicago, IL. On some occasions, the repositioning movement may be as simple as Emeryville to Seattle. In any event the costs of enjoying such a trip could reflect up to a 45% discount.

   These opportunities, as they occur, will be posted on this site and updated on a regular basis.
