So all this "we want night trains back!" stuff, and journalists falling over themselves when ÖBB ran one to Brussels...

I thought I would illustrate quite how hard a problem this is to solve.

And, yes, I have a way to illustrate hard stuff.

Welcome to #NightTrainDiagram !
This doesn't begin to cover all the complexity of how to get a night train to run, but it covers the main gist of it. And there are not probabilities on it, as there are loops in the diagram.
But seriously, this is what you would have to overcome to get more night trains on the tracks of Europe.

A nice photo opp, or some petition on Change(dot)org is not going to solve these inherent complexities for you. This needs hard work and maybe new law.

Next month I’m going on a railway adventure, travelling from Edinburgh to Hong Kong by train. 🚂

8,246 miles including part of the Trans-Siberian, and the Trans-Mongolian railway. I can’t wait!!!…

I’m off - Day 1 of my #trainadventure travelling from Edinburgh to Hong Kong! 🚂

Train #1 from Edinburgh to London was cancelled 😕 so I get two trains instead of one... first to Carlisle on @TPExpressTrains, next stop London with @AvantiWestCoast 🙂

Up early at pretty London St Pancras for the @Eurostar to Amsterdam 🇬🇧 🇳🇱

The 3rd train on my epic train journey from Edinburgh to Hong Kong! 🚂
