Spend this wonderful day enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Hudson River Valley and upstate New York from the comfort of our restored 1949 railcar, the Catalpa Falls. The original bold colors and styles of the car’s mid-century design provide a comfortable and luxurious setting for your unique trip across the Empire state, the same route that the 20th Century Limited once traversed on the famous New York Central Railroad.
Once the train departs New York on Friday, you will be treated to lunch, the first of four meals prepared entirely from scratch by our on-board staff. You’ll sip period-correct cocktails in the comfort of the Catalpa Falls' lounge or one of five Catalpa Falls bedrooms equipped for day service. Dinner will also be prepared on-board prior to the train’s arrival in Niagara Falls, NY.
After boarding the eastbound train on Sunday, you will be served a hot breakfast as you watch the scenery from our railcar's large picture windows. Lunch will also be prepared on-board prior to the train’s return to New York Penn Station.
The tickets for this rail adventure include round-trip rail transportation between New York and Niagara Falls aboard the private railcar Catalpa Falls, four freshly prepared meals, and all beverages served aboard the train. Passengers will need to make their own hotel arrangements in Niagara Falls.
We ask that all passengers arrange to arrive at New York Penn Station about 45 minutes prior to departure on Friday to expedite our check-in and boarding processes. Passengers will be escorted to our private railcar by a member of Executive Rail’s staff about 25 minutes before departure.
Information regarding the on-board culinary experience will be similarly distributed to passengers via email prior to the trip. Passengers will be asked to provide their meal selections from the offered menu options in advance to aid in our chef’s preparation and stocking of the train. Additionally, passengers will be asked at this time to notify us of any dietary restrictions or allergies so we may accommodate your specific needs.
Passengers will be responsible for their own ground transportation during their stay in Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls’s downtown area is easily traversable on foot or on public transportation during the day on Saturday. Please plan accordingly, and feel free to contact our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Passengers will be entitled to a lounge seat, double occupancy private bedroom, or quadruple occupancy private bedroom on the train for the duration of the round-trip. The ticket price includes round-trip private rail transportation between New York and Niagara Falls, four on-board meals (lunch and dinner on Friday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday), and all beverages aboard the train.
The $2,800 bedroom rate is for either one or two people to occupy a single private bedroom; the $5,600 bedroom rate is for either three or four people to occupy a single private bedroom. Passengers must make their own overnight hotel accommodations in Niagara Falls.
