These expertly refurbished 1915-1917 Pullman Cars create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and enjoyment. Meals, crafted by Executive Chef Kelly Macdonald, are prepared in a specially fabricated kitchen car located immediately adjacent to each dining area. As with all our menu choices, the meals are freshly prepared on the train using environmentally responsible ingredients, humanely raised, hormone-free meats and fresh, line-caught fish. The Gourmet Car has two seatings. Guests who are assigned to first seating dine on fresh soup or salad and their choice of entree in the dining car while traveling up the valley, and will be served dessert with complimentary coffee or tea in one of the lounge cars on the return trip. Those guests with a second seating assignment will be served appetizers and beverages in one of the lounge cars while heading North to St. Helena and will enjoy their fresh soup or salad, choice of entree and dessert in one of the dining cars on the return trip. The lounge cars are luxuriously furnished and equipped with picture windows to maximize the view. All the rail cars are expertly finished with Honduran mahogany paneling, etched glass partitions, and brass accents. Guests are invited to explore the Train where they may visit the kitchen car to see our chefs in action, our wine tasting bar where our wine expert can help you find a favorite new wine, or the observation deck to enjoy an unobstructed view of the valley.
