Fête du Citron - the Pacific Railroad

The snow has gone and we are back at the Fête du Citron.

'In which Phileas Fogg and party travel by the Pacific railroad.
.. '

These platforms were found throughout the train, and the passengers were able to pass from one end of the train to the other. It was supplied with saloon cars, restaurant cars. balcony cars and smoking-cars.  Theatre cars alone were wanting, and they will have these some day ... '

In the background - Big Ben and the houses of Parliament.


La neige a fondu, nous revoici à la Fête du Citron-----

'Dans lequel on prend le train express du chemin de fer du Pacifique ...'

'Sur toute la longueur du train, les voitures communiquaient entre elles par des passerelles, et les voyageurs pouvaient circuler d'une extrémité à l'autre du convoi, qui mettait à leur disposition de wagons-salons, des wagons-terrasses, des wagons-restaurant et des wagons à cafés. Il n'y manquait que des wagons- théatre. Mais il y en aura un jours... '

En arrière-plan - Big Ben et les Chambres du Parlement.
