Cons

Not a bad journey with lots of little amenities, like wifi or power sockets. The first thing I was pleased with was that the train was on time and I had plenty of legroom. Unfortunately, the train was a bit older and therefore louder than I'm used to, which was a bit annoying, but otherwise everything was fine.
