    Me and the ex went on the Orient Express once for the Mrs birthday...but before anyone gets too excited it was only for breakfast (which was bloody fabulous..champagne and the whole works)..we started out at Victoria Station in London and ended up in Folkstone about 2 and a half hours later...where we took a chauffered vintage Roller back to our hotel in London...

    we didn't actually have a room/sleeping berth but we had a good look around and then got a fair bit of our cash back in bubbles...it was free flowing for most of the trip...

    I don't think I'd like tom spend the whole journey to Venice on it..cramped, hot and icky sticky with no showers (just a wash basin) iirc..

    I would imagine these more famous rail tours can be a bit on the expensive side. My trainspotter friend does more low keyed private tours around Europe. Once a years he does one through Germany and there is even a disco coach included in the set. I have visions of all these spotters drinking and dancing together with their bobble hats and anoraks on.555

    Any one else been watching the SBS Specials on the Ghan , The Indian Pacific and the Train / Ferry / Train trip In New Zealand North to South . Great Series .

    I nearly watched the Whole 16 (?) Hours of the Ghan in one sitting , I find It very soothing 5555

    The Indian Pacific was good as well but I like the NZ trip the best, as it gives a good look at NZ from another perspective .

    I dont think ill be going on the Ghan any time soon as its about $4,000 Aud ....bloody hell . The NZ is better value @ $200 per trip .
