Notes NOTES: The interior of this Pullman car was remodelled as the Trianon Bar for the re-introduction of the Golden Arrow in 1946. The designer was Richard Levin, employed by Bakelite Limited and it was the first all-plastic refreshment car to run on Britain's railways. The walls are alternate grey and pink Warerite panels, while the bar top and transverse partition are in cream Warerite.
