The Royal Train: The Inside Story is the official story of Royal travel by train. There is in fact no single Royal Train, but rather a set of rail vehicles that can be assembled into whatever configuration is required, depending on which member of the Royal Family is travelling.

The inside story by a trusted and favoured author on Royal subjects. Detailed insight into the rolling stock, logistics and operating routines of the Royal Train, including interviews with key personnel. Chapters on individual members of the Royal Family include a unique look inside the Queen's personal saloon (with its own bathroom) and Prince Philip's (with its own shower). The locomotives that have pulled the Royal Train, including Prince William and Prince Henry - and steam 'specials' as well. The history of Royal train travel, starting in 1840 with the Dowager Queen Adelaide, wife of King William IV and the first Royal to travel by train.

Brian Hoey examines every aspect of the Royals' favourite form of transport, including the rolling stock, the locomotives, the costs, operating routines, refreshments and the decor in the Queen's personal saloon.

Colour & black / white illustrations.
