This is the 13th CBS Copperfield TV special, introduced by the host Jane Seymour, and the third and last one in which David Copperfield enters the scene on his Harley Davidson. The location is not a stage but a train station, in which Copperfield will perform both the first and the last illusion. So, the illusions performed are: "Motorcycle To Women" (aka "Motorcycle Metamorphosis"), "Torn Card On Train Window", "Head Mover", "Cut And Restored Rope", "Brazilian Water Levitation", "Card In Balloon", "Floating Rose", "Big Black Box", "Touch The Magic - Train Cards" (aka "Interactive Train Effect") and then "Train Car Vanish". This is a TV special in which 2 illusions have been performed on a train, the Orient Express, and the second of them, "Touch The Magic - Train Cards", is an interactive game conceived for an active participation of the TV audience. The last illusion, filmed in long take and no more repeated, is the levitation and the disappearance in midair of a 25,9 meters (or 85 feet) of steel and iron Orient Express dining car, 70 tonnes heavy. This illusion shares some similarities with "Floating Ferrari", the one performed in 1980 in the third TV special, in which the object levitated and vanished in midair was a Ferrari, and also with "Lear Jet Vanish", performed in 1981 in the 4th TV special, which also had a ring of spectators who surrounded a big object at 360 degrees.
