Got up at 5.15am, all prepared.... Sunglasses broke. Bugger. Forgot water bottle... It's ok, I have a spare.
The train is actually comfortable, much like business class seats, I had a Isle sear and the guy on the window sear could move out with our me having to get up all the time.
It's a different carriage from the the last time I went, very quiet, smooth, a little bit of swaying but not too much to get sea sick, but enough to rock you to sleep, I kinda slept most of the way.
Think I may have drooled at one stage.
There were no long stop at the National park like last time, only a5min stop to pick up, drop off passengers on the way.
