On a number of occasions throughout the year, Rail Ventures is required to reposition our luxury rail cars from their permanent stabling 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" 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 stabled in Washington, DC, there would be the opportunity to enjoy a private rail car experience on the set date of repositioning travel from Washington to Chicago, an overnight rail experience highlighted with gourmet meals and fine wines, traveling through the the scenic landscapes of West Virginia. Similarly, on some occasions, the repositioning movement may be transcontinental and the costs of enjoying such a rail adventure could reflect up to a 40% discount.
