Smoking room in the King's day compartment of the London North Western Railway's Royal Train. This room was first used by Edward VII and its leather and wood opulence is finesed by the drinks decanters on the table. Its ambience is typical of an Edwardian gentleman's club. It was later used by George V and George VI, but retains much of its original character.
