Hey All,

I have just been talking to a mate of mine that well inherited a lot of 'old money' and he told me that he just bought some tickets for something called 'The Blue Train' very exclusive... cost him £12k per ticket!!!

Anyone else know about this??

That's just one way too :\

Why would anyone ever do that?

Just take a drinking hat and a duvet on a normal train and you're sorted.


why not...

if you can afford it, why the hell not.

it may be fun, it may be crap you never know untill you try. and if you are that rich you dont care!!

for the tickets?

How much did he inherit?!!

Don't know how much but he gets a new Range Rover full package when they bring a new one out...

I think tobacco plantation came into the convo a few times...

surely thats entirely subjective??

Not really. I mean things such as charity.

I understand spending money to have a nice holiday/quality of life, but to go on a simple train journey costing this much is beyond the justifiable line imo.

Hangon, if you're a train freak then this would probably cause excitement of orgasmic proportions. His mate probably has a thing for trains.

I'm not a train freak btw.

Not at all... He likes wild life though and go through a lot of nature parks...

Its also got a 6 year waiting list!
