RailAdventure is a company that is specialised in “the operation of train journeys in the fields of upmarket events and transport, as well as special test and transportation runs for the rail industry”.
You might know the company for its many transports of new trains throughout Europe, often an unique spectacle on rails. The operator positions itself as ‘interim operator’ for railway vehicles that have not yet been handed over to the end customer. These, often newly developed, train types are first subjected to test and certification programs, that not seldom take years to complete. During this ‘test’ period the vehicles are generally operated under the responsibility of the manufacturer, however RailAdventure can support such a project by acting as vehicle keeper and/or as ‘Entity in Charge of Maintenance’ or ECM. The company can also execute homologation projects.
