About Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc.

Our company, Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc., dba The X Train, was founded on the vision of establishing a new and innovative passenger train service between Las Vegas and the Los Angeles metropolitan area using existing railroad tracks and specialized rail cars that have been refurbished to resemble a casino style motif. These specialty cars would be attached to an existing regularly scheduled passenger train running between a metropolitan area and a casino resort destination. We offer a Club X Train option to travelers much like the Pullman Car Company did for passenger rail travel in the 1880's. That concept of offering a Club X Train service option has an application to passenger rail routes across the country.
