Worldwide Rail Journeys Welcomes 2017-18 Season With New Palace on Wheels

Worldwide Rail Journeys (WRJ) welcomes the royal train tours season of 2017-18 with the ultimate luxury train — Royal Rajasthan on Wheels — which is all set to leave its maiden name and now be known as the Palace on Wheels, one of the pioneers of luxury trains in India. Reportedly, the existing luxury-laden rake of the former will be turned into the new Palace on Wheels, which will run on the same route as the earlier version of the train. However, the old rake of the Palace on Wheels will continue to trail through a shorter heritage route. The latter recently took over Royal Rajasthan on Wheels and will now run as a flagship project for Indian Railways and Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC). The refurbished version of the train will provide a much richer travel experience with wider cabin space and unique interiors.

In a short span of time, the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels got myriad recognition for its extravagant interiors and state-of-the-art facilities. The compelling interiors and the three-cabin structure of the train are being retained; whereas, the exterior will be transformed into the trademark colour of the Palace on Wheels. This decision will enable a much more lavish tour for the passengers meandering through the beautiful routes across Rajasthan and other mystic parts of Northern India.

Worldwide Rail Journeys (WRJ) is very pleased with the decision of the corporation to continue the royal journey of The Palace on Wheels, given the immense popularity it has garnered across borders, by taking over Royal Rajasthan on Wheels. Speaking about the upgrade of the train, Mr. Manish Saini, Director, Worldwide Rail Journeys Pvt. Ltd. said, "We are very happy with the initiative taken by the Indian Railways and Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation by converting RROW to POW and giving a more superior product to the customers. We have already done the pre-purchase of Palace on Wheels for the next two years in order to do aggressive marketing to retain existing business and to attract new customers."
