Jillian Harris (pictured) is redesigning the Rocky Mountaineer luxury passenger train.
Designer Jillian Harris has signed a deal to redesign the Rocky Mountaineer luxury passenger train..
Under the agreement, Vancouver-based Harris will refurbish the train’s bi-level, glass-domed GoldLeaf coach, tailoring the redesign to the rail experience, using a rich colour palette.
Her finished design will combine modern style with a nod to times past. The train is ideal for group programmes hosted by meeting and event planners.
Additionally, the project will implement a new design concept for the Rocky Mountaineer GoldLeaf coach’s lower-level dining area and upper-level seating area.
One coach will be redesigned and officially launched in the 2011 season. Remaining cars will be redesigned with the new concept in multiple stages.
During the course of the project, 16 GoldLeaf coaches will be redesigned.
Founder of Jillian Harris Design, Harris hosts the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition television show.
