Orion Pullman Carriage

Standing in the siding at Beer Victoria Station is the beautifully preserved Orion Pullman Car, part of the Golden Arrow train that used to run from Victoria Station, London to the Channel coast.

Available for pre-booked high teas, private hire or walk-in refreshments (certain days apply)

We are delighted to announce the Orion will be open this season - Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6th April until 29th October 2022

‘We used to sit besides the track,

Watching trains go clickety clack.

We’d count each carriage passing by,

And smell the smoke that filled the sky.’

George Savige

Bought and saved from the scrapheap by Pecorama, Orion was restored by highly skilled craftsmen, at the British Rail Works in Wolverton, where the Royal Train had been maintained. Here the vehicle was repainted in the distinguished umber and cream Pullman livery, reinstating the elaborate lining and coat of arms that adorned these cars in years gone by. The interior, while retaining all the beauty of the original brass decoration and polished woodwork, has been completely refurbished by local craftsmen to include individual seating, an entirely redesigned kitchen and drinks dispensary.

It was in January of 1978 that the 40-ton coach was transported an arduous 250 miles by road to the Pecorama site. It now stands majestically at rest adjoining Beer Victoria, a full-sized replica station platform.

For many years, this 1951-built Pullman Car Orion made regular journeys between London Victoria and the Channel Ports, as part of the prestigious ‘Golden Arrow’ luxury train.

We now offer this space for high teas and cream teas, cakes and pastries and refreshments.  It is also available as a private hire for parties, gatherings and special occasions.

Relax and enjoy the opulence of this elegant space whilst sampling our home-made refreshments.
