9781849541879: The Orient Express

In May 1977 the French national railways announced they were taking the Orient- Express, the world's most fabled train, out of service. The public outcry which followed caught the attention of Jim Sherwood. The last remaining four carriages, which had featured in the film Murd er on the Ori ent-Expr ess , were auctioned by Sotheby's in Monte Carlo, and Sherwood bought two of them. He then set out on a trip across Europe to track down enough original 1920s carriages, with their exquisite ArtDeco marquetry and Lalique glass, to make a full train. In 1982, four-anda- half years later, the lovingly restored Venice Simplon-Orient Express set off from Victoria Station for Venice, almost exactly 100 years after it had first carried passengers on their exotic and mysterious journeys across the continent. The re-launch of the Orient-Express attracted so much attention that Sherwood used the name for the luxury hotel company he went on the create. Orient-Express Hotels today owns some of the great hotels of the world, all personally bought by Sherwood over a period of last 30 years. It also owns two other de luxe trains - the Eastern & Oriental carries passengers from Singapore to Bangkok, and the Hiram Bingham runs down through the Sacred Valley of the Incas to the mysterious abandoned city of Machu Picchu in Peru. The purchase and restoration of each train and grand hotel has its own extraordinary story behind it, which is wittily and compellingly told.

Descripción Robson. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Estado de conservación: New. In 1977, the fabled Orient-Express was taken out of service, prompting a public outcry; entrepreneur James B. Sherwood, however, decided to do something about it. Purchasing two of the train's 1920s sleeping cars at auction, Sherwood then combed Europe for the rest of the cars, spending 31 million dollars on them along the way. As Sherwood relates here, the refurbished Orient-Express was by 1982 ready to roll along its original route between London and Venice, which inspired him to open his worldwide Orient-Express hotels. The book includes 48 pages of pictures, as well as Sherwood's essay "What Makes a Five-Star Hotel Great?" 388. Nº de ref. de la librería 73186
