Charter Services

Charter Your Own Private Train

We offer private charter trains for meetings, retreats, events or conventions. We can customize a charter train based on the size of your group and your group's individual needs.

We can arrange a charter train for any kind of group including corporate meetings, incentive trips, sports teams or rail fan excursions.

An Amtrak charter train offers:

  • Customized trip planning — catering, decorating and special activities.
  • Flexible itinerary — depart according to your schedule.
  • Opportunity to mingle and visit with your group — have meetings onboard or just socialize.
Equipment & Accommodations

Choose from a fleet of First Class, Business Class and Bistro cars or an exclusive club-conference car. Amtrak can configure a charter train to meet the needs of your group, from basic transportation to cocktail parties onboard.

Special Services

We can offer guidance and assistance in planning the decorating and catering of your charter train. We can work with your advertising or event management firm to set up onboard entertainment or in-station events. Security requirements can easily be arranged for VIP clients or celebrities, including special boarding processes to ensure privacy.

Food and Beverage

We offer customized menus with choices ranging from light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages to full meals and a full bar selection. We work with a number of reputable caterers that can arrange boxed meals, hors d'oeuvres or entrees.


Each charter train is a unique experience, and as such, is priced on a case-by-case basis. Variables include the type of equipment used, the origin and destination, onboard services and food and beverage choices.
