The pleasingly decorated Australian State Coach.

About the Australian State Coach.
Its features include electric windows and air conditioning.

I liked how the Australian Coat of Arms included a kangaroo and an emu.

Employees of the Royal Mews live in some of these apartments.

The old Christmas sleigh.

The one in the left is marked "Goat Cart"

Donkey Barouche
The word "barouche" always reminds
me of Jane Austen.

This horse was named Mary Tudor.
