Rail Europe Special Promotion Celebrates Eurail's 50th Anniversary

    Eurail Select Pass available for $125 on raileurope.com

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 6 /CNW/ -- Rail Europe, the largest distributor
of European rail products in North America, launches a rail promotion to
celebrate the 50th anniversary of Eurail. Starting May 12th at 12:00pm EST,
www.RailEurope.com will offer the Eurail Select Pass, at the 1959 price of
$125. The Eurail Select Pass offers 5 days of rail travel in 3 bordering
countries, within a 2 month period. This unique anniversary price will be
offered, while supplies last, at over 70% off the current price of $442.

    The promotion celebrates the generations of Americans who have discovered
and continue to discover the pleasures of Europe by train. Many baby-boomers
are still dusting off their backpacks and boarding European trains in city
centers instead of renting cars or taking yet another plane in yet another
far-off airport. Youths continue to make their solo travel "rites of passage"
by buying Eurail passes and hopping on and off trains to explore Europe.

    Eurail Select Passes allow unlimited travel on the national rail networks
of 24 bordering countries. Eurail Global Passes offer unlimited travel in any
combination of 21 countries. Whichever Eurail pass product, European trains
offer independence and indulgence - comfortable and roomy seats, no traffic
hassles, luxuries including restaurant cars with great food, chances to
socialize in bar cars with locals, and opportunities to drink in incredible
scenery on panoramic trains. You can even stay connected through Wi-Fi on many
high-speed routes.

popular options to navigate around Europe for fifty years. Wherever you go, a
