GrandLuxeFrom this autumn, several Amtrak routes will include five-course meals, personal butler service and mahogany interiors, as part of the national operator’s new partnership with GrandLuxe Rail Journeys. Known as GrandLuxe Limited, the new service will enable Colorado-based GrandLuxe (formerly known as American Orient Express) to a wider customer base, whilst no doubt acting as a nice money-spinner for Amtrak. Tickets for two- and three-day trips will start from $789 – a favourable rate when compared with GrandLuxe’s regular 10-day tours which start from $4,000 per person.
