The Beautiful Wembley Dinning Car was built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and went on display in London at the British Empire Exhibition in 1924. It was shipped to the union and entered service on 19th May 1926. In honour of its exhibition duties it was renamed the Wembley.
The Mulobezi railway line runs through the heart of the Zambezi River Valley. The train will set off through Dambwa Township and on up the Mulobezi Line. The railway line runs parallel to the Zambezi River and sunset will be enjoyed while travelling through the Mosi-Oa-Tunya Game Park wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed.
The locomotive runs around at Sinde Siding providing photo opportunities depending on light. The train pushes further on from Sinde Siding to stop for a five course set dinner, with dessert being served on the return journey to Livingstone.
