This once grand Orient Express train has been abandoned for years, but surprisingly it still provides a glimpse of the extravagance it once possessed.

The train that defined luxury travel back in 1883 when it was launched has stood dormant in Belgium since its last trip in December 2009.

However, while the outside might look rusted and dishevelled, this sturdy shell has protected the luxurious interior remarkably well.

Take a look inside this historic time capsule in the gallery below.

From extravagant to an eyesore


Nevertheless, don’t be fooled by the trains unkept exterior – there are hidden gems hidden inside.
