Private Rail Cars extends Offer to Luxury Trains

Private Rail Cars has extended its service offer from classic US rail cars to encompass the hire of private carriages on many of the world's luxury trains, as featured by Train Chartering's The Luxury Train Club.

Private Rails Cars continues to promote the charter of railcars in the USA, which are sometimes known as PV or 'private varnish' cars. However, there is a demand for similar rail charters elsewhere such as in some countries in Europe and Asia.

A private rail car can be defined as having the sole use of a carriage already in a train or hiring a carriage that is attached to a train. Although economy (or coach / standard / 2nd) class carriages may be appropriate for a larger group, private rail cars are generally first or luxury class.

Previous private rail cars have run for an LA movie press event, product launches, corporate incentives, family celebrations and celebrities, amongst other applications.

Now, Private Rail Cars offers small groups the opportunity to privately occupy complete carriages in the world's luxury trains. One such example is on El Transcantábrico's Gran Lujo (Great Luxury), the cars of which accommodate a maximum of just 6 in two large triple suites.

The use of private rail cars within luxury trains allows clients to make use of established reception facilities in stations and other well-established service elements, which together provide a solid basis for the seamless delivery of a good experience.

Many luxury train journeys also include escorted excursions of high quality. Private Rail Cars will arrange, on demand, tailored off-train experiences for its guests. Bespoke tours of this type can involve dedicated transportation and a personal guide. In addition, visits may encompass the particular interests of the private group.

Simon Pielow of Private Rail Cars says: "The reasons for hiring a private rail car are diverse, but feedback is universal; enjoyable journeys in secure privacy and pleasurable travel re-discovered, with superb service. Now, imagine a private rail car in a luxury train!"

Train Chartering, as the parent company of Private Rail Cars, has many years' experience in the project and guest management of group rail travel at all levels and of every size.
