A hand-held, Executair brand travel bar late last week was discovered on Amtrak’s Winter Park Express. For weeks, the “ski train” that carries its passengers directly from Denver’s Union Station to the base of the Winter Park resort was hiding one empty brown briefcase, the alcoholic contents of which had been drained on an indulgent end of January trip.
This winter season, Amtrak and Winter Park introduced their Express train lounge car. Through the end of March, it will be serving 360-degree mountain views across a two-hour rail journey, now with beer, wine, spirits, and snacks onboard.
