The Orient Express
Celebrate the “King of Trains”!
A first-class symbol of a vanished age!
If you could make just one train journey from the golden age of steam, surely it would be Paris to Constantinople on the Orient Express. Imagine: an 81-hour pleasure cruise through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world in a sumptuous 5-star hotel on rails. No wonder they called it the “King of Trains”. It was here Hollywood celebrities hobnobbed with Balkan spies, where billionaire businessmen rubbed shoulders with femme fatales, creating the heady air of glamour and danger that inspired Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express as well as that fight scene in From Russia With Love. That’s why we’ve recreated the most iconic train ever in stunning Z-Gauge miniature.

Best of British – times two!
‘The boat train to Dover’. It’s a phrase that conjures up elegant images of inter-war travel – and what better way to pootle on down to the coast from London than on Southern Railway’s magnificent Golden Arrow, with its famous Pullman coaches? Introduced in 1929, she was the UK’s response to the French ‘Fleche d’Or’ service from Calais to Paris – and, for our money, much, much better. Just £7.99 (+ £4.99 p&p) a saving of £7 on the normal issue price, your 7-piece Golden Arrow set will be sent to you with a Certificate of Authenticity. And that’s not all, you’ll also receive a FREE ‘100 Years of British Trains’ DVD worth £9.99!
The following month, you won’t want to miss one of Britain’s greatest-ever feats of engineering (and design), 4468 Mallard. The world’s fastest steam locomotive, she powered to 125.88mph in 1938 and still holds the record. Now you can own Sir Nigel Gresley’s masterpiece as part of a 7-piece Z-Gauge set for just £14.99 (+ £4.99 p&p). It will arrive beautifully boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity and TWO exclusive gifts: a set of 6 ‘Great Trains of the World’ coasters housed in a heritage-style tin worth £6.99 and a superb Mallard print by leading transport artist Mike Jeffries worth £4.99 – both completely FREE! All subsequent issues are £14.99 plus £4.99 p&p.
The ultimate treat for all train lovers
As its names suggests, our 'Great Trains of the World' collection ranges far and wide to find the best of the best - and not just steam trains as well. One collection highlight has to be the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad, a big, brash American beauty. Then there's the Trans-Siberian Express, a Cold War classic still making its epic 5,700 mile trek across Russia's frozen wastes. Closed to home, we have the pretty, scenic Rheingold Express, a luxury service that transported Europe's well-heeled elite from Holland down to Switzerland. Surely one of the greatest railway everyday.
But, when we're talking about the pride of the world's railways, it has to come back to Britain. The Great Western Railway? Cornish Riviera Express, Cornwall, United States of America Cornish Riviera Express, Cornwall, United States of America
