A lucky group of 11 from Flight Centre, APT and Infinity have taken a first look at Rocky Mountaineer’s newest fleet of custom made GoldLeaf railcars this week in Berlin. Rail company Stadler have custom-built the 10 new bi-level glass domed carriages for Rocky Mountaineer at their Reinickendorf-based facility.
The group of top selling Rocky Mountaineer agents, product managers and senior leaders are the first Australian and New Zealand agents to see the new product. Flight Centre Travel Group’s top achievers and valued partners like Rocky Mountaineer were in Berlin for their annual ‘Global Gathering’, held this year in the German capital.
“We were delighted to show off our new set of railcars to such a worthy group of advocates for Rocky Mountaineer,” said Fiona Watson, Managing Director, Sales, Asia Pacific.
“These custom-designed, custom-built railcars really are at the cutting edge of technology and will add capacity to meet the growing demand for taking Rocky Mountaineer through the Canadian Rockies,” she added.
Rocky Mountaineer is currently revitalizing its entire fleet of GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf railcars, the largest capital investment in Rocky Mountaineer’s 28 year history. The first four of the total of 10 new carriages will join the fleet at the start of the 2019 season.
