Bedroom furniture for railway enthusiasts

Bedroom Furniture

While at the NRM last week, I spotted this fantastic bedroom furniture in one of their exhibitions.

The caption with it reads:

Dreaming of trains

Imagine all the train stories that were read in this bed.
It was made for a little boy called Christopher Oldham by his grandfather in the 1930s. Every week, Christopher's grandfather travelled to Paris in a luxury Wagon Lits carriage. He wanted to share this with his grandson, so he copied the design when he built this bedset.
