Blowing off steam
As part of Road Trip 2011, CNET got an inside look at the British Pullman, one of two U.K.-only Orient Express lines. The epitome of railroad luxury, the British Pullman takes passengers from London's Victoria Station to Bristol, England, among other trips.
Here, we see the steam engine of the British Pullman shooting off a jet just after having been refilled with 6,000 gallons of water.
The Orient Express company operates cruises, hotels, train trips, and more in countries throughout the world. It's also adding new trips such as a clay-pigeon shooting journey, a Chronicles of Southeast Asia trip, and two Shopping on the Rails adventures in England.
