Additional research has shown a need to reorganize this project and expand the train to a 12-car consist to more accurately represent the Olympian.  Instead of making the train a mandatory 12-car set, we are placing the three lightweight cars and the open air observation in a 4-car set OLY01LW.  All current reservations for the original 10-car set (OLY01) will automatically be given a reservation for the new 8-car and 4-car sets.  We also have expanded and reorganized the 3-car add-on set to be a 4-car add-on set with sleepers not before offered.  If you have an OLY01 currently on reserve, and you do not want the OLY01LW, contact your dealer.

See your dealer to reserve yours now!
