uring this country's industrial revolution, and right through the first half of this century, there was no more preeminent symbol of prestige and position than a private rail car. The ultimate in luxury, these rolling palaces allowed a lucky few to travel across this vast continent in unalloyed comfort and privacy. This grand tradition has been revived and updated with the Northern Sky, a deluxe private rail car available for charter service.The opulence and ease of a bygone age are combined with the technological refinements of today to offer a traveling experience that is unlike any other.
Rebuilt from the wheels up to reflect the ultimate in both equipment and amenities, the Northern Sky is a completely self-contained luxury environment. It carries complete air conditioning and heating as well as its own power generators and water supply. There is a complete built-in CD/stereo system, television, and VCR. Nothing is omitted in the effort to make traveling by rail a matchless pleasure.
The Northern Sky accomodates eight overnight guests in supreme comfort in its four double bedrooms. The interior appointments offer all the details of a fine hotel, from hand-crafted custom woodwork, to the luxurious carpeting. The upper level dome provides a stunning 360 degree panorama of the landscape as it glides by. The spacious observation lounge offers scenic views from the comfort of lushly upholstered seating.
The standard crew includes a chef and a full-time attendant. An attendant call system throughout the car makes it easy to request service from any area on board the Northern Sky. Gourmet meals are prepared fresh in the built-in full kitchen, and served in the penthouse splendor of the dome dining area. Like the design of the Northern Sky itself, the crew's main concern is the comfort and enjoyment of the passenger.
