X Train passenger-rail service begins in Santa Fe

Passenger-rail service on the X Train, a luxury travel service, launched last week in Santa Fe, N.M., the Las Vegas Railway Express Inc. announced on Tuesday.

The route travels from Santa Fe to the rail town of Lamy, N.M., the site of the original terminus of the AT&SF railroad. The X Train is shipping two of its "Club X" luxury-service passenger cars to Santa Fe for inclusion on the route, Las Vegas Railway Express officials said in a press release.

"We are thrilled at the reception we have here in Santa Fe as we reopen the Santa Fe Southern passenger service," said Penny White, the X Train's president and chief operating officer. "We sold out our service this weekend and future bookings are filling up fast. Soon we will have our two Club X cars here, doubling our ridership capacity."
