Overmod: About 8 years ago we took a 2nd class sleeper (1st class was sold out) wherein our space held 4 transverse bunks slung by chains with two men sleeping in the lowers, leaving us to climb up with our bags. The car did have two types of rest rooms, traditional & western, traditional having a squat through floor hole. The train was fast, a comfortable ride and perfect on time arrival the next morning. An amazingly well managed system of enormous size employing vast numbers of persons but definitly different from our Amtrak & VIA experiences!

This is interesting- it looks like they might be going back to the original plan for the Chunnel.
