The Order of the Bed takes a special interest in railed transport due to the Order's top brass taking the view that it offers an exceptionally soporific means of travel. It is even possible to travel by train in the comfort of a bed, which road and air transport is not quite so good at.

The Order's frequent transport requirements are therefore handled by the Department of Railed Transport, which has three key tasks:

  1. To arrange all travel required by the Order (in association with the Planning Department);
  2. To examine rail history and produce a series of guides on various railways of interest to the Order;
  3. To, in the longer term, oversee the operation of any rail services with which the Order may inadvertently become involved.

We also work in conjunction with any other department of the Order which is planning to produce pages connected with rail transport to ensure clarity and factual accuracy.

At the present time our main area of interest concerns the former rail network which once centred on the town of Monmouth. Consideration is being given to an increase in this area of interest.
