EXTRAORDINARY PRIVATE RAILROAD CAR JOURNEYS for 2019
SOME NOTES ABOUT POSITIONING MOVES
Many times we need to move the Berlin from its home base to the origin city where a charter originates and terminates. These are called “positioning moves” and while the Berlin is usually empty, we are sometimes able to make several seats available to our railfan friends and curious travelers that happen along at the right time and want to ride with us. Positioning moves are often one way trips priced well below normal private car fares. We post available positing moves here with origin and final destination cities. We welcome guests to jump on or off at any city in between on the schedule, however, we can only offer a single rate on each move. Come along for a relaxed ride on the Berlin!
POSITIONING TRIP - Chicago to St. Paul MN - Empire Builder
on Saturday August 3, 2019
Join us for an informal, no frills ONE WAY day trip as we reposition the Berlin from Chicago to St Paul MN following a private charter. The low price point for this trip is only $250 per person, and On Board Services will be limited. Tickets are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis with no reserved rooms or seats. (NOTE: For passengers that desire the privacy of their own room, arrangements must be made in advance and a premium fare will be charged.) Meals en route will be Picnic Class (otherwise known as Bring Your Own Food), however we will supply coffee, soda and water en route. Positioning moves are a great way to “try out” private rail travel without breaking the bank. C’mon – you’ve always wanted to. Give it a try while these Heritage Railcars are still running on Amtrak!
NOTE: New Amtrak guidelines prohibit vestibule riding with open Dutch doors and on open platforms.
ITINERARY: Chicago’s Union Station is an appropriately grand location from which to depart on our journey. The grand 1920’s scale of the Grand Hall is an amazing place to wait for a train, and it is estimated that over fifty thousand people use Union Station every day. Our Train 7/27, the Empire Builder, is scheduled to depart Chicago Union Station at 2:15pm. Watch Chicago’s grand skyline disappear before our train makes its way through Chicago’s northern suburbs. Travelling from Chicago, the route takes in the city of Milwaukee before following the Mississippi River for a distance on the way to St Paul, with scheduled arrival in St. Paul Union Station at 9:53pm.
FARE: $250 per person
