Train Alive – aka Dwight Eisenhower

£17.26

During WW2 American General Dwight ‘Ike’ Eisenhower had a special train for travelling across the UK and Europe. While the engine and 2 carriages are in the National Rail Museum, Wisconsin in the USA, the details of the carriages have remained unknown till now. 
Albert Phillips, a booking clerk at King’s Cross Station conscripted into the Royal Artillery in 1939, was on the train as Eisenhower’s personal coach attendant. Clearing out his papers, his grandson, Keith Joyce found a plan of the train — the only one known to exist.
