The Solar Eclipse Limited Special will be able to accommodate 18 overnight guests in 6 Master Suites (with toilet, sink and shower annex en-suite) and 3 double bedrooms (toilet & sink en-suite with shower-restroom at end of hallway).

On Sunday April 7, 2024 Private Pullman Car BERLIN will depart Moynihan Train Hall just past 10 AM on the rear of Amtrak Empire Service Train 281 enroute along the beautiful Hudson River on our way to Albany where Private Car BLUE RIDGE CLUB will be added for the remainder of the journey to Niagara Falls, NY.

While enroute a Chef will prepare and serve both a lunch and dinner. The arrival at Niagara Falls Amtrak Station is estimated to be 7:35 PM.
