Rail Plus treated around 100 agents to a private screening of the American Essentials Film Festival’s ‘Kodachrome’ at Palace Cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane last week.
While the agents enjoyed the many Kodak (and Instaworthy) moments of North America’s contrasting and beautiful landscapes, Rail Plus’ BDMs, James Hooper, Larry Burrows and Matt Symonds (who has recently re-joined the team) reinforced the many benefits of booking Great Train Journeys through the rail provider, including having the one contact from start to completion, and the ability to tailor itineraries.
Agents were reminded that in North America, apart from the already popular Rocky Mountaineer, Via Rail, Amtrak Vacations and Alaskan Rail also provide equally spectacular experiences across the continent with a wide range of itineraries to choose from, as well as upgradable hotel options.
Sydney agents also heard from special guest Sean Lane of VIA Rail, who shared updates and key features of the train, including the year-round service; private cabin sleeper services on board ‘The Canadian’, The Ocean’ and the ‘Winnipeg to Churchill’ routes; the dome cars and 180 degree windows in the panorama car; and budget friendly itineraries.
