NEW trips in 2018

May 12-31, 2018 - AAPRCO special train to Gillette Wyoming and Denver - (Round Trip)

For the few of us who remember the excitement of train travel or for those who have wondered about what it must have been like to travel by train through our beautifully scenic country, the opportunity to experience that romantic era is now once again attainable.

Cruising by Rail (CbR) provides the opportunity to experience the excitement and luxury of private railcar travel, with several Scheduled Trips planned each year to various locations in the U.S. and Canada. We also offer the opportunity to Charter our rail cars to a location of your choice. You can relax and enjoy the scenery in your private railcar as the train races across the landscape to your destination. Experience part of history, as you make your own!


Cruising by Rail believes that a trip is not merely about the final destination, but also about the journey. We also believe that the allure of trains has never diminished from our society. Whether it is the sound of the train's whistle, the roar of the wheels turning as the train begins to move, or the call of the conductor for "All aboard!" The nostalgic feeling trains evoke is reminiscent of classical style and of a distinct experience that can not be matched by any other form of travel.




Cruising by Rail offers four timeless rail cars for private charter. Each one of our cars has a unique style and character. In addition to our Cars for Charter, CbR has access to a variety of other private rail cars, making any size trip very possible. Chartering a private car can make any event, a memorable one. CbR can take you to virtually any location serviced by the Amtrak system.

Whether you want:

  • a unique business meeting

  • to impress new clients

  • to thank your loyal customers

  • to reward your valuable employees

  • a unique family vacation

Cruising by Rail can accommodate you, so go ahead and Plan Your Own Trip.
