One of my 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 current catalogue represents all non-CIWL luxury trains in my collection. I have model and toy trains in various gauges and scales of many different brands. This book is based on the countries were the luxury trains ran in more or less alphabetic order. I do not follow a strict definition of what a luxury train is, but in general a luxury train is a consist (locomotive and rolling stock) and a route while eating, and sleeping for non-day trains, could be done in comfort. 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 trains via the maker or brand.
