New 150m Caledonian Sleeper trains

New 150m Caledonian Sleeper trains 'are hotels on wheels'.

The new 150m fleet of Caledonian Sleeper trains has been unveiled - with travellers being promised an overnight stay in "a hotel on wheels".

From June, 75 new carriages will offer en-suite double rooms for the first time.

There will be 484 rooms available, initially on the Lowlander route between London and Glasgow/Edinburgh.

They will be followed by a Highlander route between London and Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William.

The new trains hark back to an era of luxury overnight travel between Scotland and London.

It will be well out of my price range, and a lot of other OAP's price range as well.

They have been built by a company called Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF).
Looks like a great way to travel- one day maybe!
