Year Information: The Devon Belle Pullman commenced in 1947 and operated during the summer months for 7 years with the final train running at the end of the 1954 summer carrying holiday makers to the West coast of England. There were two rakes of specially prepared Devon Belle Pullmans commissioned each with their own Observation Car at the rear of the train. The Observation Cars were converted from old Third Class cars and were fitted with a refreshment buffet as well as a small pantry and kitchen. The fitted seats were either double settees or swivelling single armchairs and with an almost uninterrupted view all around due to a virtual continuous wall of window glass they proved to be very popular with the holidaymakers who could sit and while enjoying some light refreshments see the countryside recede behind them! This train pack is an excellent representation of the luxuriously splendid Devon Belle Pullman service which can be enhanced still further with the addition of the Pullmans included in the Devon Belle Car pack.
