Pros
Train was not overcrowded
Cons
It was little too cold at night. Temperature during the day was ok, but at night it got too cold and they didn't offer blankets. Also some healthy choices in cafeteria would be appreciated.
Tips
Bring a blanket for overnight travel and some food if you're health conscious.
