Not long ago, Dutch photographer Brian Romeijn discovered an abandoned 1930s-era Orient Express train in Belgium. Romeijn, who lives in Rotterdam and hunts for abandoned projects in his spare time, did some research on the train and learned it had been abandoned in 2009 after it was no longer needed. He told Country Living in 2016: “Sorry to see that nobody wants to restore it to its original state because it is a beautiful train! The smell of cigarettes is still there. I can imagine businessmen inside sitting next to ladies with beautiful long dresses. It’s like stepping into a time machine.”
