Why not sip an aperitif in the bar car, listening to the sounds of the baby grand piano before taking your seat in one of the beautifully restored restaurant cars. After dinner you may want to linger in the bar and when you are ready you can retire to your cabin, which has now been transformed into a cozy bedroom.
