    TRA’s sightseeing trains to debut on New Year’s Eve (2020/11/24)

    The Taiwan Railways Administration’s new sightseeing trains are about to enter service. The Future Express will have its soft launch this year on Dec. 31, departing from Taipei and Taichung for a stop to see the sunrise in Taitung County. These new trains are 70-year-old railcars spruced up to offer recreational space and dining. Lion Travel, which has exclusive rights to run tours on the trains, says Future Express will generate some NT$500 million revenue in a year.

    The Future Express wears the black-and-orange exterior of the Chu-kuang Express with a modern, fresh interior. Through a public tender, Lion Travel won exclusive operating rights for the sightseeing train, which will debut on New Year’s Eve.

    We’re looking into sending out two Future Express trains from Taipei and Taichung. They will arrive at Taitung’s Taimali on Dec. 31, so that passengers can welcome the first light of 2021 at 6:36 a.m. Each train can seat 50 to 280 people. Based on the passenger volume needed by the client, we’ll make special car arrangements. This tour is very suitable for company outings.

    For their maiden tour, the trains will depart from Taipei and Taichung and pass through Taitung. The two-day tour will cost about NT$30,000 a head. Then on Jan. 24, the trains will embark on a five-day round-the-island adventure, with a price tag of NT$10,000 a night. In April, trips featuring Michelin-starred cuisine will start at NT$20,000 a day. Amid the pandemic, Lion Travel is viewing domestic tourism as one way forward.

    We’re estimating that Future Express will bring us some NT$500 million in revenue in a year. This tour project can be said our biggest move in domestic tourism since the start of the pandemic.

    Local
    I would like to go. To try out the rail car.

    Local
    I’d sooner spend the money on staying in a hotel. When you can’t go abroad, you can visit an outlying island.

    These vacations by rail are aimed at high spenders, and not all locals are impressed. But due to border restrictions, there are few other options out there. Ahead of the 2022 “Year of Railway Tourism,” the transport ministry is launching new trains to revolutionize the concept of train travel.

    搶跨年財! 「鳴日號」首發行程到台東迎曙光

    台鐵觀光列車「鳴日號」預計下月投入試營運,提前為鐵道觀光暖身,公開招標確定由雄獅旅遊奪標,首波就主打12月31號,台北、台中兩列首航跨年列車,到太麻里看元旦曙光,搶搭國旅熱潮,業者樂觀預計,明年可創5億營收。

    台鐵打造鳴日號,不只黑橘配色外觀亮眼,內裝營造清爽感,日前公開招標觀光列車專屬經營權,由雄獅旅遊奪標,首班列車就瞄準跨年商機。

    [[雄獅品牌策略總經理 游國珍]]
    “預計會從台北跟台中,分成兩部的鳴日日號列車,然後12月31號到台東太麻里跨年,迎接6點36分第一道曙光。50個人最多到280個人,依照客戶所需求的大小的人數,去做一個特別規劃的搭載,那這個部分非常適合公司行號。”

    首發兩部列車將從台北和台中出發,行經台東,兩天兩夜行程要價3萬左右,1月24號也將安排環島五天四夜,預計一天1萬,4月開始還有主打米其林的列車,一天2萬,瞄準疫情後,國旅商機。

    [[雄獅品牌策略總經理 游國珍]]
    “鳴日號我們目前在預估,在一個年度大概可以幫我們,創造的營收大約在5億左右。這個案子應該是說我們疫情之後,投入在國旅之後的最大的一個,比較確認的一個方向。”

    [[民眾]]
    “有想去啊。就是坐這個車。”

    [[民眾]]
    “這個錢我可能會去住旅館,不能出國就去外島就好啦。”

    畢竟行程主打中高端客群,並非所有旅客都能負擔,但疫情期間國旅市場慘淡,交通部又把2022年,訂為鐵道觀光旅遊年,希望再創鐵道旅遊新面貌。
