The Overland Trail are historic rail passenger cars from the post-war Streamliner era. Both were built in 1949 as part of large orders for new equipment to replace worn out cars from the war effort. They are a unique and historic display of the elegance and class which railroading once stood for. Both of these noble giants (each 85' long, 13' tall, 10' wide) faithfully traversed the continent, uniting East and West, carrying a myriad of happy and content passengers while in their charge. The lounge car was the heart and soul of the train, a luxurious gathering point where one could sit back amongst friends and enjoy spectacular scenery racing past large picture windows, all the while, enjoying your favorite beverage. Music would play in the background, creating an atmosphere of gaiety and excitement which was shared by all. Fast forward to the New Millenium - they say, "some things never change" ...

For the discriminating adventurer, yesterday's pleasures of railway travel are still at hand. Treat yourself, your significant other, family or friends (even your out-of-town guests) to California's beauty by rail as we journey along Santa Fe's famed surf line between Los Angeles and San Diego. Our on board service will delight your taste buds ... your fare includes freshly prepared hors d'oeuvres and a very nice selection of wines. While on board, traditionally attired porters will serve you at your seat, recorded big band music sets the mood and seaside vistas fill our large picture windows. Fresh flowers and linen complete the experience, everything for a wonderful trip aboard the time machines known as ... the Overland Trail!

A Completely different venue for your special event!

Charter the Overland Trail for your Holiday Parties, Birthday Celebrations, Anniversaries, Meetings of all Kinds, Employee Recognition or Incentives, or for any Special Event at all ... a live rail trip is an adventure that will not soon be forgotten! You pick the day and with several Amtrak trains a day in each direction (between LA and San Diego), we can tailor the schedule to meet your needs. A run to San Diego (although the cars start out in LA, your group can board at any Amtrak station) can be as short as approximately 5 hours round trip or "all day" in San Diego. The cars can comfortably seat up to 60 people. We provide full bar service and heavy hors d'oeuvres freshly prepared on board by our executive chef. Traditionally attired crew members cater to the needs of your guests with fresh flowers, period music and white linen table cloths completing this package.

Avoid the tedium of the same old thing and the same old place, reserve your Christmas Party now for the date of your choice aboard the Overland Trail!
