In an entertaining yet authoritative manner, the author traces the evolution of royal trains over 110 years, mainly in the British Isles, but with many foreign instances. From Victoria's first train on the Great Western Railway to that of Elizabeth II; from the flamboyance of Pius IX, the Czar of Russia and King Ludwig II, and the unusual rail transport for Said Pasha's harem, to the urbane comfort of the White Train in South Africa.
