and Rate Information
We run two basic types
of trips; prepackaged itineraries are made available on a first
come first served basis to events such as the Rose Festival
in Portland. Other similar trips have included 49er games,
skiing in Utah, the Sacramento Jazz Festival and more.
The second more common
charter is one involving a single group, sometimes in
conjunction with other private cars, with a destination and
agenda already planned. The Silver Iris can travel
anywhere AMTRAK serves, and passengers can get on or off at all
stops. The car, however, can only be removed or added to a train
at major switching points such as Oakland, Sparks, Denver, Los
Angeles, Portland, Seattle and so on.
Each trip is priced on
an individual case basis but includes the following elements
which are primarily AMTRAK charges (varying by station):
$3.26 per mile;
$800 per switch (includes on and off the train);
$155 per night for parking during stopovers;
$800 per night for crew, insurance, beverages, laundry and
Food is additional and
cost varies by number of meals, menu, number of guests, etc.
Our maximum occupancy is ten plus crew for privacy and
