Rocky Mountaineer and Stadler today announced an agreement to add to the Canadian luxury tourist rail company’s fleet of custom made GoldLeaf railcars.


The project will see 10 brand new cars arriving in Canada beginning in 2018. These new cars will be completely re-engineered with efficiency and guest comfort in mind leveraging Stadler’s renowned expertise at facilities in Switzerland & Germany.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our guest experience which is the core of our business. The care and attention that has gone into every detail of this car build is remarkable. We are focused on redefining comfort for our guests,” said Steve Sammut, president Rocky Mountaineer. “Stadler is a leader in railcar engineering, and working with them allows us to re-invent our most luxurious class of service from the ground up.”

Rocky Mountaineer is currently revitalizing its entire fleet of GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf railcars.  The largest capital investment in Rocky Mountaineer’s 26 year history, these new custom made bi-level glass domed railcars is the first to be added since 2007.

“We are very proud to have won this order for these high-quality coaches and would like to express our gratitude for the trust that has been placed in us. Tailor-made is one of our core business areas and therefore, we are convinced that we will deliver on all wishes and needs to the complete satisfaction of our new business partner together with our Stadler team,” said Peter Spuhler, CEO and owner of the Stadler Rail Group.
