Plate from the 'Illustrated London News'. The 'Ohio' sleeper car, the first sleeper car of the Great Northen Railway, produced in 1875, was converted four years later into a dining car, designed by Waring, who went on to design the London & North Western Railway Royal Train in 1902-1903 and the royal yacht. The use of the car, renamed the 'Prince of Wales', was limited to first clas pasengers, whom it allowed a leisurely dinner during its four-hour journeys from King's Cros to Leeds.
