Luxury Train Dream of the Desert to Launch in 2025 in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabian Railways (SAR) will launch its first luxury train, Dream of the Desert, in 2025. Arsenale Group, an Italian company known for launching the La Dolce Vita train in Italy and other trains in Uzbekistan and the UAE, is SAR’s partner in this project.

The agreement between SAR and Arsenale Group, valued at $53 million, was signed this Thursday.

The Dream of the Desert train will have 40 luxury cabins and a maximum capacity of 80 passengers. The first luxury train for “rail cruising” across Saudi Arabia will be operational on a 770-mile route from Riyadh, passing through Hail, to the northern city of Al-Qurayat, close to the border with Jordan.

Launching the luxury train services in the Kingdom for the first time in the Middle East and North Africa region will add qualitative services and additional options in the transportation sector in the Kingdom.
