About The Royal Duchy




'The Royal Duchy' train set consists of traditional Mk1 First and Standard Class vehicles. All vehicles are liveried in Chocolate and Cream which represents the classic GWR Western Region livery carried in the late 1950's and early 1960's time period before the corporate days of British Rail Blue and Grey. Currently this train is undergoing a complete refurbishment, internally and externally and will have the same finish as our "Royal Scot" set.




In total this train can provide 252+ Premier Dining / First Class seats and 320+ Standard Class seats. Additionally, if required, a Buffet Car can provide an additional service of refreshments, boosting capacity of an extra 44 Standard Class seats.


The Buffet Car is usually situated between Premier Dining / First and Standard Class.


'The Royal Duchy' train set is air braked only. It will operate with both modern diesel and air braked steam locomotives.


Premier Dining & First Class


Our classic coaches provide large windows, with traditional armchair-style seats, table lamps and headrest covers. All seats benefit from full-size tables with white table cloths and flowers in sumptuous surroundings. Fine Silver Service dining is provided, with all food chef-prepared from fresh ingredients in our fully-equipped onboard kitchens. The train can be branding and themed with onboard entertainment options if required to meet all individual requirements.


The coach interiors are individually trimmed with different cloths making the train a very classic environment to travel in.
