What are the trains like?

Each train usually consists of two Slovakian Railways (ZSSK) air-conditioned intercity cars and three Austrian Railways (ÖBB) regional cars branded City Shuttle.  The City Shuttle cars don't have air-conditioning, but the windows open.  The train has toilets and luggage racks, there are also bicycle spaces in the end car, but there's no catering car as it's only a regional train on a one-hour journey.  The train is 2nd class only, there is no first class.  Like almost all European trains, these trains are all non-smoking.  There are power sockets for laptops & mobiles in the ZSSK cars, but not the ÖBB cars.
