i have been in a 1st class booth and a 2nd class booth…
worst nights sleep i have ever had… had a better sleep in a grit bin…
hate to think what the seated sleeper is like… they look just like normal 125 1st class recliners..
if you can sleep anywhere think it would be a good option..Posted 6 years ago
o dear , did that once as a teenager, now i just pay the extra 40 quid, if youre lucky they will have a few bunks left when you get on…but they have a really cool Tv and you get a bacon roll and coffee….i loved the sensation of the bed…. yea so just give the guard 40 quid and get a nights sleep, there is no way you can have any thing but a horrible time in one of those seats, how far you going?Posted 6 years agorootes1Member
id find the 40 quid mate
yer and get out to the airport… 😆
the sleeper is sooooo slow done it from both inverness and aberdeen…
often it just sits still for ages in the middle of knowwhere..
it is an ‘experience’ though and better than flying for taking a bike
you can even get two people, bromptons and a case of beer/snacks in a berth..
the bar is also odd… it boast the ‘only leather sofas on the network’…. sure some people just stay in the bar car all nightPosted 6 years agogeoffjSubscriber
I’m booked on my first sleeper service tomorrow night, could only afford a “reclining seat”
I barely sleep in one of the bunks, I dread to think how bad it will be in a recliner.
My advice would be a large dose of night nurse + whisky.
Oh and don’t be freaked out when you wake up travelling in the opposite direction. something to do with shunting at Carstairs.
And remember you can use the 1st class lounge at Euston toPosted 6 years ago
