Thinking of taking the night train? Ever thought about taking the night train? On many occasions, traveling to the Eastern part of Slovakia, I have taken the sleeper. Most of the time you can get some rest, and if you’re lucky the sleeping carriages are less than 30 years old. But the concept is a good one. The linked site covers a lot of the routes around Europe. If only Czech/Slovak railways invested in the rolling stock, then maybe it wouldn’t feel like being in a working museum. Germany and Netherlands are more like hotels on rails.
