I really enjoyed the journey and it was a really pleasant experience. The train left on time and arrived on time, and I didn't have to change trains, which was very relaxing. The train was also clean and there was plenty of space. The air conditioning was a bit much, but it wasn't too bad. The value for money was pretty good and fair in my opinion. Overall a good journey!
