Description

Passengers could have a three course meal, including a roast dinner, for about three shillings and sixpence (18.5 pence). They could also order snacks and drinks. First class carriages were more luxurious than third class. The seats were wider and more comfortable, and the carriage was more elaborately decorated. Models posed for this photograph, which was taken for publicity purposes.
