How a Train Trip Becomes a Luxury Experience
From a simple trip to an evocatively moving moment: there are many stories about train travel – some are entertaining, others irksome, but they seldom revolve around style and comfort. This is not the case for the cutting edge Luxon panorama rail car – and the luxury is more than skin deep. The operators accepted no compromises when selecting the technical equipment, and decided to use WAGO rail-mount terminal blocks, pluggable connectors, and interface electronics.
The Luxon panorama rail car is in a class by itself. It offers everything required for a modern event location: a classy bar, an elegant lounge, seating options that are as comfortable as they are individually variable, and fine cuisine provided by a cook with 2 Michelin stars. But what makes it special is that the Luxon does not remain in one place; instead, it carries its private or business guests along the rails through Germany and Europe. “We can basically go anywhere that the tracks accommodate our wheel gauge – from Narvik in the north of Norway to Turkey in the south,” states Jörg Schurig, technical project manager. Together with Alex Dworaczek, he conducts the business of RailAdventure GmbH, a railway company based in Munich that operates the Luxon.
