>> WESTERN USA TIMESHARE NEWS:
FORT WORTH: Ahhh, romancing the rails… I can almost feel the train wheels rattling beneath me just thinking about it. Are you a lover of train travel, too?
Here’s the thing. There’s an outfit called America’s Trains, Inc. that is offering all-inclusive Journey by Rail vacations on luxurious rebuilt passenger railroad cars. Starting later this year, seven-night Journeys will be available as timeshares throughout the USA and into Canada traveling as part of Amtrak trains and other railroads, with access to over 20,000 miles of track. Average price is about $13,000 per interval week. Journeys are on ‘train sets’ that include a combination of up to five sleeper, dining and lounge cars, and on single self sufficient ‘private cars’. They include extended layovers at intriguing en-route destinations, where cars are dropped off by one and picked up by a subsequent Amtrak or other train, allowing passengers to live on board while enjoying many unique off-car experiences.
Fixed week timeshares called Train’Shares are sold on train sets. Train’Share ownership includes rights to annual or biennial all-inclusive Journeys by Rail for two passengers in a designated room category during a designated time period on a specified rail car. Owners have floating week privileges because they can also travel in any available car at any time on routes of their choice. As members of the Owners Association, Train’Share buyers have rights to rail car assets.
Annual or biennial Train’Shares are for a 10 year ‘initial’ or a ‘perpetual’ term. Initial terms can be converted to perpetual terms. The company is also promising they’ll buy Train’Shares back at a price that provides Owners with valuable considerations at least equal to the amount they paid for their Train’Share.
AND they are also offering a 1/12th, 1/8th and 1/6th fractional interest ownership of self sufficient private cars. Among other rights, fractional interest owners can select their own preferred itineraries.
They are affiliated with RCI/Registry Collection for exchange purposes.
If the thought of spending a week or more in the lap of all inclusive luxury on a retro train appeals to you there’s much more to investigate at this link. And just to whet your appetite, here’s a picture of a bedroom in one of the cars. Can you see yourself drifting off to sleep in this bed to the soothing rhythm of the train?
