The Guardian – “End of the line for Europe’s iconic night trains?“, 12.09.2014
“There’s no basis to the argument that sleeper trains are outmoded per se,” said blogger Jon Worth, who has launched a petition to save the Copenhagen night train. Britain has announced upgrades to its Caledonian and London-Penzance sleeper services, while China and Russia have invested in new night-train carriages, he pointed out.
“Railways are still the most environmentally sustainable and comfortable way of getting around Europe. You cannot expect people to spend a day on a train – you can expect them to spend a night.”
