Excellent and very helpful.

My favorite way to travel. 

Prefer the older trains with windows that can open.
(Keeps me from feeling cooped up - like to smoke cigars and drink coffee in the back.  Chat with other people that feel restless)



The new ones are too much like airplanes.  Don't like the flat screens with the advertisements repeating on loops.
Felt like I was breathing in recycled farts for the whole trip.  Don't like that they did away with the windows and didn't like the new airline seating.  I think I'll be in the minority on that; but I just like the Klang-Klang of the old ones.

Don't know what they are called (train captain?), but the train worker opened the door in back (as in the photo) and I could take video and we could have smoke and chat.   Liked that.  Could walk up and down the hallways to stretch legs and relax.  Squeeks, bumps and grinding metal noises very nice to sleep to.  Slower but more sense of adventure.


New ones were something like this on the inside:

Good point, but give me the Hi-speed and our bed in 5 hours Kyiv-Kramatorsk.
Have to say tho, the rockin & rollin in the regular trains do tend to enhance the "motion".
