Our Pullman style carriages were originally built by British Railways in 1972 and following their retirement from Inter City service were purchase by Statesman Rail and underwent an extensive overhaul and are now finished externally in the traditional "Pullman" livery of umber and cream with full lining out - the names were chosen to reflect the mountains in England, Scotland and Wales which ‘The Statesman’ regularly pass during its travels throughout Britain.
The interior saloon areas are in traditional timber and marquetry effect finishes with unique designer carpeting and upholstery.
Ben Cruachan seats 36 passengers whilst Helvellyn & Cadair Idris have 42 seats.
Dining tables are equipped with brass table lights and each carriage has a stow away area and hanging facility at the end of the saloons. The interior décor has been chosen to compliment other saloons in the fleet.
