To travel on the Brighton Belle was to travel in style, a style more closely associated with the Orient Express on extended ventures overseas than a journey between London and Brighton that took less than an hour. Businessmen used it, but so too did many people in radio, television and the theatre. Indeed it was a campaign to keep it running organised by a group of celebrities that saved it (albeit not for long) from the axe in the mid-1960s. It last ran on the last day of April 1972, by which time its magic had faded to some extent, but it is still remembered with affection today.

Product Description:

The Brighton Belle was so famous that it had its own arch over Platform 17 at Victoria Station. The authors trace the history of this fabled train, from the first railway services to Brighton and the inaugural all-Pullman train in 1881 (with the coal in the tender whitewashed for the occasion), to its final journey in May 1972. The book describes every aspect of the 'Belle', from electrification to the service and style in its Pullman cars.
