Many times we need to move the Berlin from its base in New Jersey to the origin city where a charter originates and terminates. These are called “positioning moves” and while the Berlin is usually empty, we are sometimes able to make several seats available to our railfan friends and curious travelers that happen along at the right time and want to ride with us.  Positioning moves are often one way trips priced well below normal private car fares.  We post available positing moves here with origin and final destination cities. We welcome guests to jump on or off at any city in between on the schedule, however, we can only offer a single rate on each move. Come along for a relaxed ride on the Berlin!
