Watercolour of the inside of Queen Victoria's saloon, by Barbara Jones, c 1980. The carriage was built in the 1860s. There has been a royal train since the coming of the railways, and Queen Victoria preferred to travel by train, finding it more comfortable than a stage coach. The train also had carriages for her servants, and others travelling with her.
