Choose either a relaxing deluxe railway journey to The Greenbrier Resort, where ladies and gentlemen still experience traditional southern elegance and grace, or a train enthusiast's overnight round trip through to Chicago.

Visit one of America's favourite resorts as well as the last of the great railroad hotels, once a common sight throughout the USA.  
The award-winning Greenbrier Resort, 6,500 acres in the scenic Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia, has just reopened following a $50 million renovation project. 
The Greenbrier is world renowned for its fine cuisine, lavish interior decor and grand public spaces.  Breakfast and dinner in the main dining room are elegant events to remember.  Choose to relax in one of many cozy lobby areas about the hotel...treat yourself to a spa treatment, a golf outing....or participate in wide selection of additional activities available for your enjoyment.  Complimentary options include a hotel tour, indoor swimming pool and fitness center, afternoon tea, holiday concert, evening first-run movies and happy hour Hors d'oeuvres.
The resort's newest amenity "The Tavern Casino" is now open and ready for your enjoyment.  Try your luck at this intimate guests-only venue offering table games, including Blackjack and Roulette in addition to 44 slots.
A highlight of your visit will be a fascinating tour of the once top-secret cold war "Bunker" meant to house the United States Congress in the event of a nuclear threat.

It's a wonderful railway journey as the "Cardinal" train leaves the industrial northeast behind and climbs into the rugged mountains of Virginia and West Virginia.  
You'll cross the mighty Susquehanna River, travel along the historic Washington Mall, cross the Potomac River, pass the immense Pentagon, call on quaint Charlottesville--home of Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia and reach the summit of verdant Afton Mountain.  
Guests traveling through to Chicago will especially enjoy a Sunday morning daylight jaunt through the spectacularly scenic New River Gorge. 

Travel in comfort aboard the classic 1923 Pullman "Kitchi Gammi Club".
Greenbrier guests may relax on a sofa while Chicago guests experience a traditional Pullman berth.  Afternoon tea service and delicious meals are prepared and served onboard.
