    Product Features and Details
    HO Scale DC Era 1 

    The luxury trains of the CIWL (Orient Express) consisted usually of one baggage car in the front and one in the back, a dining car and two sleeper cars. The Ostende (Belgium)-Vienna (Austria) Express started operation on June 1st of 1894. There was a daily train between Ostende and Vienna via Brussels, Frankfurt, Würzburg, Nuremberg, Passau, Linz and Vienna. The idea behind this train was to give mostly British travelers a direct connection to South Europe. Even the train was called Ostende-Vienna Express it ended actually in Budapest. This Express consisted of an extensive fleet of 23 sleepers, 7 diners and 15 baggage cars. In 1895 they added a special car going to Karlsbad and 2 cars going to Triest and Constanta.

    The cars were cladded with teak wood on the outside and the sleeping and dining cars had extremely luxurious interiors. There was no other train in the world which showed this kind of luxury.

    Models on the Orient Express cars are always a challenge in design and production. We chose cars which have never been realized as a production model before. These cars are a must for every collection and we are sure that you will enjoy these beautiful teak-wood carriages. The set are limited and numbered.

    These models are manufactured to the highest standards in license and with the approval of the Wagons Lits Diffusion France.
