Rocky Mountaineer and Stadler have announced an agreement to add to the Canadian luxury tourist rail company’s fleet of custom made GoldLeaf rail cars.
The project will see 10 new cars arriving in Canada, beginning in 2018. These new cars will be completely re-engineered with efficiency and guest comfort in mind leveraging Stadler’s renowned expertise at facilities in Switzerland and Germany.
“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our guest experience which is the core of our business. The care and attention that has gone into every detail of this car build is remarkable. We are focused on redefining comfort for our guests,” said Steve Sammut, president, Rocky Mountaineer. “Stadler is a leader in rail car engineering, and working with them allows us to re-invent our most luxurious class of service from the ground up.”
Rocky Mountaineer is currently revitalizing its entire fleet of GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf railcars. The largest capital investment in Rocky Mountaineer’s 26-year history, these new custom made bi-level glass domed rail cars are the first to be added since 2007.
