A Unique Experience

Have you noticed how often the word “unique” is misused? It does not mean “unusual” or even “very unusual.” It means “one-of-a-kind.” Staying at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite feels like a privilege, and it is, but it is not unique. Your travel on a private railcar, the Redwood Empire, in a style that does not exist anymore, will be a unique experience – unless you are one of the privileged few who have already traveled on a private railroad car, in which case your experience will merely be wonderful.

See the country from the comfort of the Redwood Empire, a private railcar available to rent for trips. Based in Oakland, California, we give our clients a chance to experience the wonder of vintage rail travel in style. Very few people in America have ridden in a private railcar, making it a truly exclusive experience.

When you reserve your trip, we will discuss everything you want to enjoy while aboard, including requests for beverages, and any dietary restrictions for the menus. On business trips, you will have ample opportunity to pitch your ideas with your clients together in an enclosed space. This is also a wonderful opportunity to treat family to an unforgettable vacation. We can take care of the cooking, cleaning, and maintenance; you get to enjoy the ride.
