Sierra Madre Express


Train Information
The Sierra Madre Express offers a travel experience reminiscent of the golden age of railroading. Our fleet includes four sleeping cars and a domed dining and observation car. In addition, there are four other public areas. As the train travels past some of the most spectacular vistas imaginable, the traveler may choose any of these areas from which to view them. Additional information about the individual cars are listed below.
The "Arizona"
Built in 1946 by the Pullman Company, it ran on the Northern Pacific between Chicago and Seattle. Retired from service in the mid-50’s, it has been returned to its original state. The Arizona is a lounge car with a glass enclosed observation area and wet bar. It accommodates 22 guests and has four double occupancy compartments with upper and lower berths, a sink and toilet and one drawing room with a private toilet.
