Orient Express to be sold

There are messages telling that Reisebüro Mittelthurgau (RMT) would like to sell their rail equipment, as it was nearly impsooible to fully cover costs of operation and maintenance. The five ex-Rheingold dome cars were sold to Sweden together with some newer sleeping cars. They will all return to regular service. For the ancient CIWLT Orient Express cars no buyer is known but RMT said they were willing to sell as soon as a good offer would come in. Also the famous "Churchill"-arrow (red arrow) from 1939 would be sold if a buyer turned up.
 
RMT also was involved in the American Orient Express, for details see "Trains" magazine of February.
