Designed by Thierry Gaugain, who started as an industrial designer, later designed motorcycles and hotel interiors, and now he is famous for his designs of superyachts. But did you know he also has a very interesting and luxurious train design?

The G train is a luxurious traveling option for a wealthy customer who would be willing to spend $350 million for a very unique way to travel. 1,300 feet (396 m) long with an exterior from a high-tech glass that can shift from transparent to even black color.

Since the train is a glass marvel the interior will utilize the light to the maximum. For ex. it offers seven types of scenery. Many ways of configuration. Is it winter outside, and you want to feel warmer? Just put on a summer day scenery inside.

“We tend to think about rail transportation only in terms of speed, moving lots of people from point A to point B in record time,” says Paris-based designer Thierry Gaugain, who conceived the G Train. “But this 14-car train would belong to a single owner. It’s an alternative, very leisurely way to see the world, beyond the yacht and jet.”

Thierry Gaugain put together a team to make this as close to reality as possible. For those who can afford it of course. Stadler to build the train, Saint-Gobain, French glass manufacturer, to help with the exterior glass, UK engineering company Eskerley O’Callaghan and railway operations specialists. The train is capable of traveling across Europe and Asia, from Barcelona to Beijing, as well as North America.

The forward cars include a large owner’s suite, guest rooms for eighteen, gym and spa, dining car, and public areas that can accommodate everything from live theatre to art shows. The last car is meant for the owner’s cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles to explore the world beyond the glass paradise on the rails.
