If like my partner Ken and I,  you have had the pleasure to indulge in its leisurely, luxurious lifestyle,  the film will be an opportunity to learn about the fine art of preserving its traditions and hospitality.  To step on board this very famous train is a dream journey, travelling back in time to the exquisitely elegant era of train travel.
