Back before the 1840s, Queen Victoria was not a fan of traveling by coach while on tour. Enter: the royal train. This is what it looked like when it carried King George V and Queen Mary to Blackpool, as part of their tour of the North West of England.
When Queen Victoria first rode on the royal train in 1842 from Windsor to London, the interior of her saloon is the epitome of extravagance, from the upholstered blue walls to ornate gold accessories. Pictured above is the modern-version.
