THE PATH &OF THE "GOLDEN ARROW" There is little of the ordinary train about the "Golden Arrow" that leaves Victoria Station, London, at 11 a.m. for Paris. As the Kent ish fields slip by you seem only mildly interested in the acres of apple blossoms outside. What does im press you is the vibrationless hum of the train. The swaying chintz and the still glasses deny that you are gliding along at anything like fifty miles an hour. At Dover the great SS Canterbury smiles at any fears you may have about the English Channel. At Calais the customs formalities are graciously waved aside by the French Government. A ticket with a Golden Arrow printed on it exempts you from fighting your fellow travelers at the douane barriers, and your luggage is examined on the train. A train of ten luxurious parlour cars awaits your coming. No elbowing or struggling-just solid com fort and luxury with that unencumbered entry to your seat, for a Golden Arrow ticket entitles you and your belongings to immediate sanctuary. Calais, Boulogne, and Amiens pass and soon myriads of lights begin beckoning you to join the laughter that is Paris. Six and one half hours between London and Paris. Service operating both ways.
