DINNER IS SERVED IN THE DINING CAR…
Afterward, we can retire to the club car…
People still ride trains??? What is this? The 1860's?
^ Those in color are currently in use.
Some very nice ones, too. I wish there was a 'club car' from Chiswick into the City but, alas, no such luck.
I love travelling by train, and when I am on the West Coast, I prefer Pacific Car Diner, Los Angeles.
As featured in the film "Training Day"
It actually used to be a detached dining car. Now its a building. Look for the 2 black bulls.
I dunno if you could call Chiswick fashionable. There are a number of Tv poersoanlities adn celebs livign there because the housign stock is ncie, it;'s very ciovnenient for wqest lonfdon hotspots like Notting Hill and it's pthe clsoest reasoanbly affordable nice neighborhood to White City 9the BBC complex). Also, a lto of people whos tart out as singles/couples in Chelsea and south Ken mvoe to chicwick for the bigger house when they ahve kids (touche').
What has changed a lot is the restaurant scene with La Trompette and High Road Brasserie among the rash of relatively new, top notch restaurants.
Dunno; haven't visited in a while. I don't think so, the renovation has proceeded slowly. Lovely park, though.
^^ As a London rail nut, Luca either uses Chiskwick Park Tube Station which is on the District Line (Piccadilly Line trains act as an express along this stretch and don't stop here), with all trains going eastwards to the City.
The other station is Chiswick Railway Station which is on the Hounslow Loop Line offering 6tph off-peak - a commuter line within London that runs out of London Waterloo and then back into after going around the loop. London Waterloo then connects to Bank (traditionally viewed as the 'heart' of the Square Mile') via the Waterloo & City Line or locally known as the drain due its shuttle service between the two stations and no stops inbetween.
The later is closer to Chiswick House.
