I took a night train from Krakow back to Berlin. Ok. I've taken night trains a few other times, and I have fond memories of the movement of the train rocking me to sleep and waking up more or less refreshed at my destination. We've already established that I disproportionately remember the good stuff, but I really thought I liked night trains.
Well, I was wrong. I had a couchette, so I was one in a compartment of six beds (five were occupied) and the heat was on and it was so. hot. It was really not comfortable. And everyone else seemed to be asleep, so I couldn't really open the window and make them all listen to the train noise. And when I left the door to the hallway cracked open a little, the guy in the bottom bunk would shut it. Thanks, dude.
The idea of the night train is to avoid giving up a day of sightseeing, but I basically ended up doing that anyway - I was so tired when I got to Berlin, I spent a lot of the day napping.
Anyone else? Experience with night trains? I swear I took a really lovely one once from Oslo to Stavanger in Norway, but that was in a compartment with just two beds and it was in summer, so, less scope for overheating.
