A new luxury train route will take tourists and locals alike to the US’s most scenic locations. The glass-domed train designated for the route will take passengers on a two-day ride from Denver to Moab, Utah, which will let passengers view the Rocky Mountains and Utah’s beautiful natural arches. Travel and Leisure has more details:
It makes an overnight stop in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, a town known for its hot springs and rugged Rocky Mountain views.
Rocky Mountaineer, the company behind the route, operates three existing luxury trains in Western Canada — between Vancouver and the Canadian Rocky Mountain towns of Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper.
"The work to find a new route has been underway for several years,” Steve Sammut, president and CEO of Rocky Mountaineer, said in a statement announcing the expansion. “We needed to find a special location with many of the same features we have in Western Canada — incredible scenery, iconic destinations, and the option for an all daytime, multiday journey that is best experienced by train.”
The company is known for its glass-domed trains, chef-designed menus, expansive outdoor viewing platforms, and a lack of sleeping cars. It instead aims to showcase mountain views during the day and deliver passengers to comfortable, cloud-like hotel beds at night.
