If there is a marriage in the family and you want to celebrate it with pomp then you have to just make a wish to the Indian Railways and you can have a princely marriage excursion on the most luxurious train in the world — the Maharajas’ Express.
The railways are proposing this novel idea even as it seeks to broad-base its commercial viability. Alternatively, the Maharajas’ Express, which provides five star amenities, can now be chartered for royal event launches primarily during the off season period between April and September.
IRCTC MD M.P. Mall told a select group of journalists, who were taken around the luxury train, that no other such train in the world could match the facilities and comforts on board the 18 coach, half-a-kilometre-long enchantment on wheels.
The train has been awarded the coveted World’s Leading Luxury Train Award by World Travel Awards for the last two years running.
