Rocky Mountaineer's GoldLeaf fleet is complete with 10th car

Rocky Mountaineer received an early Christmas gift this year with the delivery of the 10th newly-built GoldLeaf rail car, completing the fleet ahead of the luxury train line's 30th anniversary in 2020.

In 2015, Rocky Mountaineer ordered 10 GoldLeaf rail cars from Stadler in Germany. The new rail cars seat 72 guests and boast features such as dome windows that can be dimmed to moderate intensity of incoming sunlight, along with redesigned galleys to heighten culinary offering and other technical features to enhance the guest experience.

“We are extremely excited to add these new GoldLeaf rail cars to our fleet, and they have been extremely well received by both our guests and our team,” said Steve Sammut, president and chief executive officer, Rocky Mountaineer. “The delivery of this final rail car marks a key milestone for our team ahead of our 30th anniversary season, and we look forward to hosting and showcasing the best of western Canada to even more guests in 2020 and beyond.”

Rocky Mountaineer has doubled its capacity over the past six years with the addition of these 10 GoldLeaf and 12 SilverLeaf rail cars.
