Discover the world's most luxurious trains and relive a bygone era, when the journey was an experience in itself, aboard the opulent carriages of the world's railways. A voyage where the passenger becomes a real traveller, steeped not only in the natural, stunning beauty of the surroundings but also in the romance and opulence associated with the golden age of rail. Explore this aristocrat of trains, which represents the very apotheosis of rail-borne lavishness. Nine carriages in imperial purple livery with open observation terraces carry just 36 passengers in the lap of luxury. We journey along some of Britain's least used rail lines and through some of Scotland's most breathtaking scenery. Mountains, lochs and forests provide an ever-changing backdrop to this journey aboard the Royal Scotsman.
