Peru Rail currently offers only 3 departure a day to Machu Picchu from the station in Poroy, one departure on the more economic Expedition service, one departure on the comfortable Vistadome service and 1 departure on the ridiculously high priced Hiram Bingham service. Tickets for the Expedition and Vistadome services often sell out many weeks / months in advance so best to book online as soon as you can. If tickets have already sold out for this service don't panic! Most of the trains to Machu Picchu depart from Ollantaytambo and not Poroy.
Hiram Bingham Service (Peru Rail) (This price valid December 31/2012)
The Hiram Bingham train is the most luxurious way to journey between Cusco and Machu Picchu. The carriages are painted a distinctive blue and gold while interiors are luxurious, warm and inviting with elegant decoration in the style of the 1920's Pullman trains. As passengers step on board they are encompassed in a world of polished wood, gleaming cutlery and glittering glass. The train consists of two Dining Cars, an Observation Bar Car and a Kitchen Car, and can carry up to 84 passengers. Enjoying such a luxurious journey as you pass through small villages that can't afford adequate schools or healthcare may make some people feel uncomfortable, and rightly so. Ecotourism at its worst.

The Vistadome Service (PeruRail) (This price is valid December 31/2012)
The Vistadome service has large panoramic windows and additional windows in the roof allowing you to enjoy the mountain scenery. A snack and hot drink are included with the Vistadome service. There is also a table in front of you. With the Vistadome service you get posh leather seats which are very comfortable with more leg room than the Expedition service. However the main advantage is that you arrive at Aguas Calientes before the Expedition train (but only just).

Expedition Service (Peru Rail)
This is a new train service introduced in 2010. The Expedition service has large panoramic windows and additional windows in the roof allowing you to enjoy the mountain scenery. A snack and hot drink are included with the Expedition service. There is also a table in front of you and the seats are comfortable. Overall not a lot of difference from the more expensive Vistadome service and, in our opinion, offering good value for money.

(ii) Ollantaytambo (Ollanta) to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu) and back.
This involves a combination of bus/taxi between Cusco and Ollantaytambo and then train between Ollantaytambo and Aguas Calientes.
The round-trip service on the Vistadome service between Poroy (Cusco) and Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu) tends to fill up pretty quickly so if they're full you'll have to travel by road from Cusco to Ollantaytambo and then take the train between Ollantaytambo and Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu). Ollantaytambo is about 65 kilometres from Cusco along a scenic paved road. You can take a taxi from Cusco to Ollantaytambo which takes about 1 hour 45 minutes and costs about US$30. Alternatively you can take a local bus from Cusco to Urubamba and another local bus from Urubamba to Ollantaytambo which takes about 2 hours 30 minutes in total and costs about US$4 per person. Trains between Ollantaytambo and Aguas Calientes take about 1 hour 30 minutes. You have to arrive at the station 30 minutes before the departure time.
