Christmas came a little early for Rocky Mountaineer as it accepted delivery of its 10th newly built rail car just in time for its 30th anniversary in 2020. “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,” said Steve Sammut, president and chief executive officer, Rocky Mountaineer. “The delivery of this final rail car marks a key milestone for our team ahead of our 30th anniversary season, and we look forward to hosting and showcasing the best of western Canada to even more guests in 2020 and beyond.”
Rocky Mountaineer has doubled its capacity over the past six years with the addition of 10 new 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.
