The Santarèm museum in Portugal loaned out not only the carriage used by Queen Maria Pia of Portugal but also the locomotive that pulled it and the saloon car used by the two princes, making up a complete royal train dating from 1858.

In 2010, the Dutch Railway Museum in Utrecht hosted the international exhibition entitled Royal Class, regal journeys. The entire museum was decked out in a regal atmosphere. For the first time ever, historical royal trains from all over Europe could be seen in a single exhibition. A unique experience for anyone who is curious about the luxurious way in which European Royalty was used to travel. Carriages used by the different royal houses of Europe were on show.

In addition visitors were able to admire other carriages and interiors as used by King Louis II of Bavaria, Tsar Alexander II, Franz Ferdinand, Carl Gustav of Sweden and King Albert I of Belgium.

A special replica of Saloon Car No.1 was also being built. This carriage was originally built in 1864 specially for Queen Anna Paulowna, the wife of the Dutch King Willem II. The carriage used by the present Dutch Queen, Beatrix, was also on show.
