Rocky Mountain’r down under

Senior executives from Rocky Mountaineer visited Australia last month, highlighting the importance of the local market to the Canadian rail operator. In fact Australia is the second biggest export market for Rocky Mountaineer, with president Steve Sammut hailing the support of Australian travel agents, wholesalers and tour operators. Big things are also in the wings for Rocky which will next year roll out four brand new GoldLeaf rail cars along with a significant overhaul of its TRACKS e-learning program for agents.
