Rocky Mountaineer and Stadler Rail Group have announced a partnership to add ten new carriages to the luxury rail company's fleet of glass domed GoldLeaf coaches.
Launching on rail routes in 2018, the new custom-made carriages will be the first to be added to the train in more than a decade.
Steve Sammut, president of the luxury tourist train, said: “We are constantly looking for ways to improve our guest experience, which is the core of our business. The care and attention that has gone into every detail of this carriage build is remarkable. We are focused on redefining comfort for our guests. Stadler is a leader in railcar engineering, and working with them allows us to reinvent our most luxurious class of service from the ground up.”
The company is currently revitalising its entire fleet of GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf carriages. Marking the largest capital investment in the company’s 26 year history, the new custom made bi-level glass domed carriages are the first to be added since 2007.
