Immerse yourself in an awesome dining experience when you relax aboard our unique Wine 'n Dine train.  Board our classic Pullman Dining car "Epicurus" where all tables feature picture-window views of the scenic Hudson River Valley.  As the train speeds along the east shore of the Hudson you'll be pampered with a delightful dinner and refreshing libations.   It's an unforgettable experience as you absorb the beauty of the Hudson Valley while traveling over 140 glorious riverside miles!


Dining aboard the Epicurus is an event as our chef prepares a savory meal for your dining pleasure.  A traditional multi-course "dinner in the diner" is served restaurant-style complimented by fine railroad china, fresh flowers and snow white table linens.   The chef's daily menu offerings allow a choice between at least three entree selections.


Travel in comfort free from crowds and traffic hassles and enjoy views you could never see from the highway.  Awesome sights in the Hudson River Valley include West Point, Bannerman's Castle, Storm King Mountain, Bear Mountain, Hudson Highlands, stately mansions, massive bridges, and a myriad of picturesque sailboats, barges, tugboats and lighthouses.  Experience firsthand the greatness of the Hudson that has inspired so many artists, poets, and writers.
