The G-Train is an all-glass marvel designed for one owner to travel the world’s railways in ultimate luxury. Oh, and it’s totally doable
Famous trains like the Orient Express, Super Chief, and Flying Scotsman defined the luxury railway experience in the 20th century, but a new bespoke, smart train – with its all-glass exterior and golden hue – promises to reinvent travel by rail in a unique, 21st century way.
“We tend to think about rail transportation only in terms of speed, moving lots of people from point A to point B in record time,” says Paris-based designer Thierry Gaugain, who conceived the G-Train. “But this 14-car train would belong to a single owner. It’s an alternative, very leisurely way to see the world, beyond the yacht and jet.”
