"Bright lights"

  Jo b. 
Please turn the bright lights off on the train at night. I caught the train from Barcelona to Madrid overnight and was hoping to sleep but the bright lights were left on all night which made sleep very difficult. This made my journey uncomfortable. If this one thing were resolved I believe the comfort of my travel would have been much higher. Please consider this hospitable practice. Thank you.  

"Excellent Service"

Thank you Rail Europe for the excellent service. You made our train travel from Barcelona to Madrid pleasant and comfortable.  

"Barcelona to Madrid return "

  Nicholas e.  21/09/2013
Good return journey from Barcelona to Madrid and back, tourista class.. Comfortable seats. Speedy journey. Preferred to flying which overall would probably have taken longer. Would have been nice to have English subtitles on the film that was showing. The shared blinds (with the passengers in front and behind, meant that if one person wanted the window blinds closed it affected everyone. I wanted to see the view and that wasn't possible as some else wanted the blinds closed. Good facilities in the on board shop. Screaming children meant the headphones handed out free were worth their weight in gold !  

"Kiwis on Italian trains"

  Vicky r.  20/09/2013
We had a great trip from Bari to Rome. This was a fast train and arrived in Rome on time so we were able to get to the airport in time for our transfer to Glasgow. Seats were comfortable, We loved the scenery - a good way to see a bit more of the Italian countryside. A good experience.
