This timetable was produced for the journey of the Prince of Wales and Princes Alexandra of Denmark from Gravesend, Kent to Bricklayers Arms, London on Saturday 7 March 1863. This would have been placed in the royal saloon for the benefit of the Prince and Princes. Such opulent timetables would often make an appearance throughout the history of the Royal Train, usually for special occasions.
