    Bumpy train ride, but charming. Train seat in 1st class Royal Saloon compartment was very comfortable. Tea and snack included on the journey. It cost an extra €15 to use this company, but honesty it seems well worth for peace of mind and convenience. Train was in perfect time. Took a little time to figure out which carriage we were in, but all worked out.
