Mr. John Pullman invented real railway luxury hotels to cross all the states from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Under patronage of Belgium King Leopold II, Nagelmackers started constructing his masterpiece hereafter called the Orient Express. In 1901, when Queen Victoria died, the cars were overcrowded with princes, noble people and kings. And, thus, the train justified its name: “a train of monarchy”.
