Attributes of the train
Which country these trains operate in.
These trains are provided by Hungarian Railways (MAV)
- Compartment Seats
- Couchettes ; 4 berths AND 6 berths
- Sleeping cars with 3 bed, 2 bed and 1 bed cabins
There are no deluxe sleeping cabins with showers and toilets inside the cabins available on these trains.
'Kalaman Imre' is the name given to the service that these trains are used on in both directions between Munchen and Budapest.
They are also used in both directions on the Zurich - Budapest route.
These are seats that face each other that can, in theory, be pulled flat to create a sort of bed.
However, to make use of this facility you need to have a spare seat opposite to yours.
The seats are grouped in rows of 3, so a total of six seats, can be arranged so that three people can lie down on one large bed (cosy).
However, this isn't guaranteed.
If too many seats are occupied then converting them into beds won't be possible.
Washing facilities are available.
Drinks and snacks are available from vending machines.
A berth in a 4 berth compartment is more expensive than in a 6 berth (the top bunks in a 6 berth compartment are particularly confined).
Sheets and pillows are provided.
Washing facilities are available (shared with the other compartments).
Complimentary bottle of mineral water and breakfast tray provided.
Access to menu of additional (paid for) snacks/drinks served in the cabin
Bed linen provided.
Washing facilities in cabin (sink/basin with soap and towels).
Complimentary - bottle of mineral water, large breakfast with a choice of items served in the cabin
