If I ever got a reputation for sleeping around, it would be because I’ve always been drawn to the romance of European sleeper trains. For a while, however, my crush on couchettes was curbed, when budget flights became everyone’s darling and many sleepovers were stopped. Thankfully, my loco-libido can be satisfied once more. As many travellers are seeing the benefits of flight-free travel, train companies are dusting off their rolling stock and refreshing their bed linen...
A nice piece from the Irish Times
It is nice to see the return of overnight sleeper trains in Europe mostly due to the efforts of OBB. How ever some railways are still dragging their feet such as SNCF and RENFE. It's hard to believe but there is still no direct train between Madrid and Lisbon since the overnight train was withdrawn due to Covid.
