It had been very noisy on the train, although it was not very busy. Unfortunately, there was also no on-board bistro, so I couldn't eat anything. However, the train had been very clean and there had been an internet connection and enough power sockets. The seats were also comfortable. The journey did not require any changes and there were no delays.

The train connection from Dortmund to Düsseldorf was punctual and very reliable. The train started and arrived exactly at the scheduled time. The cleanliness of the train was very good, the floor, windows and seats were very clean and appeared to have been freshly cleaned. The seats were very soft and comfortable. There were power sockets on the train which was very handy, I was able to keep myself occupied with my laptop during the journey. The toilets on the train were very good but could be a bit cleaner. It would be nice if they were cleaned more regularly. The bistro on the train offered a good selection of snacks and drinks. The prices were reasonable, in my opinion. Overall, the train journey from Dortmund to Düsseldorf was a pleasant experience for me. The punctuality and the availability of power sockets were particularly convenient.

Contra
IconNo legroom and no table available at the seat
The train from Dortmund to Düsseldorf had been full, but every passenger had got a seat. It had also been surprisingly quiet here. The seats, however, were comfortable but had little legroom. There were also no tables here. Apart from that, there were two power sockets per row of seats and a stable internet connection. The train and the toilets looked quite clean. Tickets were also checked very quickly. The train was not delayed and I didn't have to change trains.
Pro

IconRestricted view from the window due to lack of cleanliness outside
The return journey from Dortmund to Düsseldorf had definitely been more relaxed. The train had a normal load factor and a pleasant volume. The staff here had also been very friendly and carried out a smooth ticket inspection. There were plenty of power sockets on the train and a stable internet connection. The seats were also comfortable. Unfortunately, the outside of the train was a bit dirty, which limited the view outside. But I also have to consider the delay as a negative, which was 10 minutes. However, it was not necessary to change trains.
