Another Train Question: Grandluxe Express?

Sat Sep 22, 2007 5:24 am

Sorry to start another train thread, but I don't see a current one open.

I saw this train about an hour ago passing through Union CIty, CA. It had three or four Amtrak locomotives, sightseeing car and the coaches were named from famous places, i.e. Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Paris (pic below) and New York (pic below).

It looks like a luxury charter train. Does anyone know where Grandluxe Express travels to and fro?

All over the place. Generally they do a few weeks on a certain tour and then move on to the next one. I have seen it pass by my window in Ottawa a couple times.
You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.
