The Blue Train has enjoyed this award for a record-breaking fifth consecutive year since 2009. The Blue Train adds this award to an already array list of accolades collected over the years including being voted as the World’s Leading Luxury Train for three consecutive years between 2009 and 2011.
Following the record-breaking results of The Blue Train – Travel Info workshops which concluded on the 31st August 2013, which saw a staggering 1537 participants and 834 completed evaluations with an 80% pass mark, the winners have been announced!
