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.
