CLEVELAND — Two luxury rail trips have been set to benefit the restoration of Reading T-1 4-8-4 No. 2100, owned by the American Steam Railroad Preservation Association. Both trips feature two private cars attached to scheduled Amtrak services and are coordinated by Luxury Rail Travel, of Harrisburg, Pa.
The Laurentian will operate on July 27 to 30, with a round-trip from New York City to Montreal, Quebec, on Amtrak's Adirondack. The trip fare includes meals aboard the train, as well as drinks and snacks, hotel accommodations in Montreal, and three days and two nights in the city.
In November, the Steel City Limited will be part of Amtrak's Pennsylvanian between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh over the former Pennsylvania Railroad main line. Meals en route will be provided, along with accommodations in Pittsburgh and a full day to explore the Steel City.
Equipment for both trips include the 1952 Budd observation-lounge Alexander Hamilton, a former Pennsylvania Railroad car, and Passaic River, a 1948 Budd-built buffet-lounge of Santa Fe ancestry. Both cars are presently owned by the Morristown & Erie Railroad.
