The luxury train consists of two original Pullman cars from 1931 with beautiful and valuable wood inlays. There is also a piano bar car from 1928 and a luggage car from 1931. Two Gourmino dining cars from 1929 and 1930 are also on board for lunch.
It's not just the comfortable armchairs, the bay windows, the delicate window tables or the precious teak that stand for the elegance of the carriages. Rather, it is the overall work of art, the harmony of all details together with the special ambience that make up the unique experience. We travel elegantly on rails in historical carriages in the charming Art Deco style of the early 20th century.
All cars have been beautifully restored to the last details and comply with today's safety regulations. The train is pulled in proper style by historical locomotives, including the world-famous "Crocodile" of the Rhaetian Railway.
