As appealing as the life of a luxury home owner in Los Angeles can be, sometimes it can be nice to get a away from the sunny SoCal life and venture out into the world for a little rest, relaxation and recharge. One company that is pulling out all the stops to create a new spin on luxury vacations is American Railway Explorer. This company has taken train touring to another level by featuring the finest luxury cars that can be chartered to destinations throughout the country, making stops along the way to ensure an unforgettable luxury experience.
Operating out of the historic Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, the American Railway Explorer experience is distinguished in each and every detail of the excursion. High-end travelers can privately charter a train consisting of three exquisite railcars designed in the fashion of the Venice Simplon-Orient Express by the famous, London-based train architect James Park.

The cars’ designs are a study in luxury and comfort with walls adorned with delicate marquetry, custom-made brass lamps and rosette ceiling sconces crafted in England. In 2012, the railcars were renovated to feature new, state-of-the-art mechanical features, updated kitchens and sound systems and fresh new fabrics for the windows, upholstery and bedding.
