Bulleids, Boat Trains and The Night Ferry

Stop off at Overton (For Ferry Meadows) and view our new exhibition. Some of the heaviest trains on Southern metals were the legendary boat trains, often hauled by OVS Bulleid's finest engines.  From the glamorous Golden Arrow to the famous Cunarder and the mysterious Night Ferry, this new free exhibition will give a brief glimpse into the former splendour of these trains. Particular focus is given to The Night Ferry, Britain's only Continental through train. The display will be in our Wagons-Lits dining car and former Alberg-Orient Express and Nord Express sleeping car, which is fitting bearing in mind Wagons-Lits initiated and operated the Night Ferry.
