  • Train was excellent but... |
    "The train was wonderful. Warm and on time. The connecting train stop at Lyon was confusing. I did not understand that you have to wait to the last minute to find out where the connecting train station is. Then rush to the platform. This needs to be explained on the ticket. Otherwise GREAT! "
