Beautiful classic steam locos and carriages, restored by Bushtracks Africa and Rovos Rail, incorporate a classic steam expedition with fine dining provided by Sun International’s Royal Livingstone Restaurant and Chefs.
The train comprises five carriages; Two Dinning Cars, a Kitchen Car, Lounge Car and an Observation Car with Steam Locomotives 10th Class 156 and 12th class 204 built by Northern British Locomotive works in the 1930’s. Loco 156 was renovated by the famous Wildlife Artist David Sheppard and in 1971 donated to Zambia National Heritage and restored again by Bushtracks in 2005. The Beautiful Wembley Dinning Car was built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and went on display in London at the British Empire Exhibition in 1924. It was shipped to the Union and entered service on 19th May 1926. In honour of its exhibition duties it was renamed the Wembley.
