We recently had the privilege of producing three bespoke unvented cylinders for the Royal Scotsman.
Due to the tight space restrictions, a standard product wouldn’t suffice, so the cylinder had to be manufactured to the clients exact specifications. The cylinders will provide the en-suite facilities on the train with their hot water and showers. This project highlights the flexibility of our bespoke cylinder manufacturing and the benefits it provides to the installer and customer alike.
The train itself first launched in 1985, with the original carriages were replaced by a new set of Pullman cars to be renovated by James Park Associates in 1990. Lacquer-polished wooden-panels and warm tonal fabrics perfected the Edwardian country-house appeal. En-suite cabins, complete with steamy showers supplied from the unvented cylinders, established unprecedented comfort and the birth of a luxury legend.
In 2007 the train was christened Royal Scotsman and has continued to raise the bar of style and innovation since. The recent addition of the Bamford Haybarn Spa carriage marks a world first in the pursuit of perfect pampering. A true chieftain of the rails, Royal Scotsman is an awe-inspiring way to delve into the soul of the Scottish highlands.
