My trains collection consists mostly of rolling stock (locomotives, coaches and wagons). All locomotives in my collection are steam outline locomotives (running on live steam, clockwork power or electricity). One of the collecting goals is to make it possible to run representations of the luxury trains of yesteryear, i.e. the period that steam trains ruled . The luxury trains in continental Europe were largely initiated and operated by the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits et des Grands Express Européens; this is a catalogue of carriages for these trains. The index in the back can be used to find model or toy carriages via the maker or brand.
