Luxurious Coaches

Passenger cars are reminiscent of the golden age of railway travel, with luxurious wood paneling, tables, carpeted floors, soft lamp lighting, wooden blinds, air conditioning, bathrooms, large windows to appreciate the picturesque journey and open-air viewing decks that allow passengers to step outside and “smell” the tropical rainforest.

At present, there are five luxurious passenger cars in operation, each named after a river of Panama:

Rio IndioRio Pequení Rio Gatún
Rio Mamoní Rio Bayano 

In addition, the Panama Canal Railway Company acquired a 1938 Southern Pacific Dome Car, the Rio Chagres, and remodeled it at a cost of almost $1 Million.

All passenger cars have a bar and snack service.
