Steam Train Charm


The Steam train is an important mode of transportation in the novel “Around the World in Eighty Days” by Jules Verne, with Steam trains being used for travel between major cities on different continents around the world.

  • London – Paris by train 1 day
  • Paris – Istanbul by train 2 days
  • Istanbul- Bombay by train 6 days
  • Bombay-Kolkata by train 3 days
  • Kolkata-Hong Kong by train 3 days
  • Hong Kong -San Francisco by train 18 days
  • San Francisco- New York by train 7 days

The Steam trains in this novel are the early, newly developed trains of the time. These trains are powered by steam and have an average speed of about 60 kilometers per hour, so trains are faster and more convenient than other vehicles at that time.

The important events related to the train in this novel include

  • Phileas Fogg and Passepartout had to face a train accident while traveling from Paris to Istanbul. Luckily, they survived.
  • Phileas Fogg was arrested in India on suspicion of being a criminal. They were helped by an English journalist named Philip Forrester, who helped them escape from India by train.
  • Phileas Fogg and Passepartout had to cross the Rocky Mountains by train. They had to face snowfall and cold weather.

The Steam train allowed Phileas Fogg and Passepartout to travel around the world in 80 days, reflecting the development of technology and transportation in that era.

Steam train Charm is a charm of a vintage steam locomotive. It has a classic look with a big smokestack. The words “All Aboard” are engraved on the back, which means “Get ready to embark on a journey around the world.”
