Train Chartering is pleased to announce the launch by GW Travel of the $25m Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, a fully en-suite private train, to serve the world's longest railway line and bring new levels of comfort and service to rail travel in Russia. The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express is available for private charter from Train Chartering.
His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent GCVO will officially name the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express in the Imperial waiting room at Kazansky Station on Friday 27 April at 11am.
The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express consists of 21 new state-of-the-art carriages, the majority of which were built in collaboration with the Russian company, Zircon Service. The inaugural departure is on 6 May, 2007. The 14-night journey leaves from Moscow and travels more than 6,000 miles (10,000 kms) to its final destination, Vladivostok, on the Sea of Japan.
Tim Littler, President and founder of GW Travel commented: 'After seven years of planning I am delighted that the Golden Eagle project is coming to fruition with the official launch by HRH Prince Michael of Kent in Moscow on April 27th. Russia's first luxury train will confirm our Trans-Siberian tour as the 'Voyage of a Lifetime' and one of the world's great travel experiences.'
Simon Pielow from Train Chartering is enthusiastic about this new addition to the global stable of luxury Trains: ' Tim and GW Travel have invested a great deal in Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express; the result is a superlative train on one of the world's prime rail routes. Train Chartering looks forward to its first private charter with The Golden Eagle.'
The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express will accommodate guests in 12 new sleeping cars that are made up of Gold and Silver classes. The six Gold class carriages are among the best available in rail travel today, featuring modern en-suite amenities including power showers and under floor heating. Cabins are equipped with state-of the-art DVD/CD players, LCD TV screens, audio system, individual air conditioning, and wardrobe space.
