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 Grands Express Européens; a catalogue of carriages for these trains is available here.
The current catalogue represents all non-CIWL luxury trains in my collection. The catalogue is based on the countries were the luxury trains ran in more or less alphabetic order. I do have in my collection carriages that were not specific to a luxury train but still were luxurious stock (for luxurious sitting, sleeping or dining); these are also included in this catalogue. Of course models of British and American Pullman cars do form a large part of the luxury train collection. The index in the back can be used to find model or toy carriages via the maker or brand.
