Orient Express

Page history last edited by Michael 1 month, 1 week ago

back to the Index or the European Trains page 

 

     This is the original "Orient Express" route. Operates three days a week, composed of ten to twelve cars. London to Istanbul first-class fare is about £35 ($171); dinners cost about 10s each. Second class tickets, not available at all times, are £25 ($121); second-class dinners are about 7s. Times are taken from the 1937 schedule -- actual times change slightly over the years.

     First-class Pullman accommodation in Europe averages 4.5d per mile traveled, plus 15s - 20s per night for sleeping berth. 3d per mile for second-class, plus 10s - 12s per night for sleeping berth. Third class is about 1.5d per mile, plus 6s per night for sleeping berth.
