The Vienna-Nice-Cannes-Express was a luxury train of the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits. From 1896 to 1939, he traveled between Vienna and the French-Italian Riviera, partly from Saint Petersburg. Due to its popularity with the Russian and Habsburger Hochadel, he received the nickname "Train of the Grand-Duc" before 1914. The CIWL introduced the train for the first time in the winter of 1896/97 to satisfy the demand of the European upper class, whose most important holiday destination was in the winter time the Riviera, outside of France and Great Britain.
Like all CIWL luxury trains, the Vienna-Nice-Cannes-Express consisted solely of sleeping, dining and luggage cars. By 1914 these were the usual teak-wagons of the CIWL. In the model the complete 6-piece train with two luggage- three sleeping- and a dining car is realized. The targets of the sleeping car are authentically different. The sleeping and dining cars have interior lighting and outside as well as inside with numerous details and attachments.
