I have always loved trains, and especially fell in love with the concept of the Orient Express after watching the Doctor Who episode Mummy on the Orient Express. This model design is loosely based on the Venice-Simplon Orient Express, a luxury train that runs from Venice to Paris. The engine is also based on the great Pacific Class locomotives similar to the Emerald Night. This model makes both a great display piece and a model to run with your other trains!
