Chippenham, Wiltshire, UK (PRWEB) July 12, 2013
The Luxury Train Club has pulled together a programme of trains especially for those who only require a day trip or a short 2- or 3-day journey. Membership is simple and free, just subscribe to the Club newsletter.
Luxury train holidays are sometimes up to 15 days’ duration, and many are between 4 – 8 days. Client feedback indicates that some would prefer shorter trips. Identifying the ideal journey time is often a time-consuming task.
The Club has one ready-made solution – the Calendar of Luxury Train Journeys, with a link from every train information page.
However, with the launch of a service focussing on a programme of one-day and short journeys (3 days or fewer), the Club has made the job even easier.
Here is a selection, on four continents, noting that Club Member discounts apply for every train, and that all prices shown are public rates, per person:
Blue Train (from ZAR 13,265) and Rovos Rail’s Pride of Africa (from ZAR 13,600) – 2 days

Simon Pielow, Concierge at the Luxury Train Club,“ Luxury train travel is as good as it sounds, but sometimes a long trip won’t work, however appealing the idea. The Club makes it easy to find the perfect journey, in every way.”
