to bed in your train compartment. The
train leaves at 10 pm and travels through
the night until 2 am when it reaches a
convenient siding. It then goes back to
where you started, arriving at 6 am. You
get your hotel 'room' for the night in the
city centre, and a lovely train ride.

||nice idea could work for nights out on the town better than a Taxi or the night bus not as they really exist and Hippo if this train is in the UK what about our brilliant and punctual rail service? couldn't get to work because of leaves in the siding, or a lost driver

up next morning, wash, dress, step out onto the
platform, and find oneself in a randomly selected
other city? That'd be fun.
||Yeah, I love it too.. Imagine 10 days journey, with absolutely no hotel stay, which are large chunk of expense in any journey.
