Picture yourself on a luxurious train, traveling back in time to a far distant land

"Twenty-five years ago, American businessman James B. Sherwood envisioned a way of traveling luxuriously through some of Southeast Asia's most enticing regions. Sherwood purchased several carriages of the Silver Star train built by Nippon Sharyo and Hitachi in Japan. He then had them remodeled in Singapore with the intention of mirroring the essence of classic Indochina."

"Hopping aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express is like teleporting yourself back to a simpler time, yet with ample opportunities for pampering and first-class amenities. A cream and green exterior is accompanied by polished wood-paneled corridors and silken furnishings, all with a classic Asian flare."

As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.
