English: Images of the luxury brown (umber) and cream liveried and individually named pullman carriages owned by the Venice-Simplon Orient Express (VSOE) pictured at York station in 18 April 2009. Based at Stewarts Lane in London, the set is normally used by VSOE on their own British Pullman services in the UK, and for the London-Folkestone leg of their Orient Express trans-continental trains. On this day however they were hired to the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, owners of the brand new steam locomotive 60163 Tornado, for their Yorkshire Pullman train, a non-stop trip from London Kings Cross to York and back. See the Tornado gallery for full details of the trip. Pictured while they were being serviced during the York stop-over, the formation of the VSOE carriages was as follows:
