The Orient Express was only one of the many luxury trains in existence during the golden age of rail travel in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Today's commuter can scarcely imagine the opulence of these great trains, some of which were decorated in silk, satin, and chamois leather, and contained libraries, luxurious private salons and, in one case, a throne car.
Travel on these great trains to some of the world's most fabulous resorts (as well as some rather dangerous trips) is described in this lavishly illustrated and completely entertaining book, which draws on many personal travel journals of the period. Some of the famous luxury trains included are The Twentieth Century Limited (New York-Chicago), The Orient Express (Paris-Istanbul), Trans-Siberian (St. Petersburg-Moscow-Shanghai), Le Train Bleu (Calais-Paris-Nice), Canadian Pacific (Montreal-Vancouver), and Indian-Pacific (Perth-Sydney).
