What You'll Get


Luxury train rides are increasingly rare, due in large part to the time it takes to roll out red carpet over all the tracks.

Trains depart Chicago from Union Station and Milwaukee from Intermodal Station. Summerfest tickets are not included in this deal. Some of the bands will be shooting music videos on board, so passengers may find themselves on camera.

Possessing an inherently steady rhythm, trains are the transportation of choice for some of Chicago’s most notable folk outfits, jazz ensembles, and mash-up masters. Bands such as The Hood Internet, Bone & Bell, and Cloudbirds board a glass-domed train for a VIP ride with breakfast, lunch, and dinner whipped up by Chef Dan Traynor, formerly of Fred’s at Barney’s New York and Chicago’s Prasino. A dedicated wait staff whisks such light gourmet cuisine as chicken-caesar wraps in spinach tortillas or roast-beef sandwiches with tangy horseradish mayo to travelers in their spacious seats, and toes tap to the jazz noodlings of Everypeople Workshop and the gutter-voiced rock of Joan of Arc.

This elite level of service is made possible through High Iron Travel, which bases its luxury cars on Great Britain’s now defunct 1940s Pullman line. The double-decked cars seat 66 on the upper level, with views through a wall of windows entertaining wandering eyes, and host a dining room on the lower deck where passengers can guide fork trains into mouth tunnels.
