Amtrak is going upscale. GrandLuxe Rail Journeys (formerly American Orient Express) is attaching its luxury cars to selected Amtrak trains starting in November. Passengers who pay the premium price will be able to travel along regularly scheduled Amtrak routes in fancy refurbished cars from the golden era of train travel. GrandLuxe typically operates luxury tours spanning ten days of rail travel in scenic locations such as the Grand Canyon and Pacific coast. This partnership will allow them to offer shorter, more affordable trips, though many will still balk at the $789 per night pricing.
