Christmas has come early for Rocky Mountaineer thanks to a delivery of a new GoldLeaf Rail Car, marking the tenth newly built rail car for the iconic Canadian train.
President and Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountaineer Steve Sammut said the delivery of the final rail car marked a key milestone for their team ahead of their 30th anniversary season in 2020.
The deliveries have been arriving since Rocky Mountaineer ordered ten GoldLeaf rail cars from Stadler in Germany back in 2015.
The new rail cars seat 72 guests and feature dome windows that can be dimmed to moderate intensity of incoming sunlight as well as redesigned galleys to heighten culinary offering and other technical features to enhance the guest experience.
Rocky Mountaineer has doubled its capacity over the past six years with the addition of these 10 GoldLeaf and 12 SilverLeaf rail cars.
What started as a few traditional rail cars in 1990 has grown to more than 70 rail cars, including locomotives and power generator cars.
“We look forward to hosting and showcasing the best of western Canada to even more guests in 2020 and beyond,” Steve said.
“We are extremely excited to add these new GoldLeaf rail cars to our fleet, and they have been extremely well received by both our guests and our team.”
