    Background: The ultra modern Rome Milan Express stood in Rome station waiting to begin its inaugural run Mar 6; but instead of gazing out of the windows at the railway station the passengers on the inaugural run turned their eyes inwards to a fashion parade of mannequins, showing the year's spring and summer fashions.

    These models followed the latest 'waist--where-Nature--put-it' line. Hips were greatly accentuated. Media for the gowns and suits included mohair, soft wools, organdy, chiffon and silk. This year's colours will be yellow, beige, black, pale violet and green.

    A railway official was heard to say the show could help passengers forget how late a train is.
