LAS VEGAS, NV, March 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- United Rail, Inc. (OTCPK: URAL), a short line railroad consolidator and owner of the SmartRail brand for electronic Precision Railroading and brand licensor, today announced that it has acquired the X Wine Railroad excursion train from Las Vegas Xpress Inc. for $500,000.

The X Wine Railroad is a service between Los Angeles and the wine country of Santa Barbara and Los Olivos, California. The service began in January 2017 and is the first of its kind to transport passengers from Los Angeles by rail aboard elegantly restored rail cars to visit the unique wine country of Los Olivos in the Santa Ynez valley.

The X Wine Railroad, as the service is called, introduces travelers to the wine country of Southern California via rail. Passengers board at Union Station in Los Angeles and travel by train to Santa Barbara. There they are escorted by luxury tour vehicles to the Los Olivos region of the Santa Ynez Valley, home of some 200 wineries in the region. Travelers spend several hours on a variety of tour activities such as winery tours and tastings, the Old Town Los Olivos wine crawl or just taking in the sights of this magnificent wine lovers’ destination.

“The X Wine Railroad project has been a great hit with the public since we began operations,” stated CEO Michael Barron.  “It is a fantastic tour and it gives our staff solid operational experience aboard a train in preparation of our expanding excursion service into other markets.”

Dianne David, President of the Passenger Rail Subsidiary of United Rail, Inc., added, “The wine/rail industry is a budding market in the rail excursion business.  Our service is quite unique -- a private tour of wineries and wine products for the true wine aficionado.”

The service is all inclusive and includes luxury train tickets, a breakfast and dinner service, wine tasting on board, excursion to Los Olivos, brunch at the vineyards and special gifts for riders. The service is primarily marketed to group planners, corporations and special parties. Prices are customized to the group requirements.
