World Train Travel has added Tren Crucero, the newly-launched cruise train in Ecuador, to its travel agent-friendly rail information and booking site.
World Train Travel is a simple train information and rail booking system connecting travel agents, travel organisers and individuals with train information, services, fares and booking for rail journeys worldwide. Launched in May 2013, World Train Travel is in continuous live beta. Content includes luxury and touring trains, rail passes and train tickets. The site will continue to grow in the coming months, with many rail products providing commission for travel agencies.
Tren Crucero, operated by Ferrocarriles del Ecuador Empresa Pública, takes passengers across Ecuador´s Andes watching the transition from moorlands, through cloud forests, to tropical coastal landscapes.
The railway travels along the ‘Avenue of Volcanoes’, a range of more than 10 volcanoes over 3,600 m/12,000 ft; Tungurahua volcano is still active, 5,023 m/ 6,480 ft. There are 450 kms/280 miles of scenic train ride, climbing to 3,600 m/12,000 ft and descending to sea level during the trip. Along the route, there are several opportunities to meet Andean and coastal indigenous communities and witness their way of life.
Steam locomotives from the beginning of the 20th century will run on 2 different stretches. The carriages are First Class, decorated in Ecuadorian style, with historical references; train crew ensure exceptional on-board service.
Itineraries vary from one to three nights, the nights being spent in selected hotels whilst the travel is on the train.
Simon Pielow of World Train Travel, says, "Stunning scenery and a cruise with exciting off-train visits - Tren Crucero will be a winner with our agents and travellers."

World Train Travel has details of luxury and tourist trains, rail passes and train tickets. Registered travel agents can earn commission on many of the featured rail products.
Many rail products and train services have been difficult or not cost-effective for travel agents and other travel professionals to book. It is also complex for individual travellers to book.
On the other hand, public demand for train journeys is increasing across the whole rail sector.
World Train Travel aims to make it easier for the travel trade to meet this growing demand by presenting special train journeys in a clear and consistent way.
