What is the sleeping-car like?

The Munich-Budapest portion of this train has one Hungarian sleeping-car, built in the early 1990s by Spanish manufacturer CAF.  Inside the sleeping-car it's air-conditioned, carpeted, quiet and civilised.  Each sleeping-car has a side corridor off which open 11 sleeper compartments, each compartment can be sold as a 1, 2 or 3 bed room.  There's crisp clean bedding, soap, towel, bottled water.  Morning tea or coffee, croissant & fruit juice is included in the fare.  The compartments have normal locks plus a security deadbolt which can only be locked & unlocked from inside and a security chain.  Sleeper berths are sold individually, if you don't want to pay for a single-bed sleeper you can book one bed in a 2 or 3 berth and share with another passenger of the same gender.  Compartments are single-sex unless your party occupies the whole compartment.  An excellent way to travel...

What is the couchette car like?

The Munich to Budapest portion of this train also has a comfortable Hungarian couchette car.  The couchette car has a side corridor off which open 9 compartments, each of which can be used as 4-berth or 6-berth.  Clean sheets and a pillow are provided, the doors have a normal lock and security lock or chain.  Toilets and washrooms at the end of the corridor.  Couchette compartments are not segregated by gender, as you do not normally get fully undressed.  These  couchette cars were built in the early 1990s by Spanish manufacturer CAF, they are now being refurbished with a new blue & white exterior colour scheme.  See generic couchette car numbering plan.  Click the compartment images for larger photos.  If you get any good photos of these cars in the new colour scheme, please get in touch!
