    Shows four men relaxing in a railway carriage. Their compartment is divided into four bunk beds on which the men read and smoke from a large vessel in the middle of the compartment. Having summoned a guard using a button marked 'Refresh[ment] Van Ring', one man asks the guard for the present location of the train and for a 'sherry-and-soda, and a cigar and two or three more volumes of Punch'.
