We booked sleeper cars on the night train from Turku to Oulu. They were kind of cool. The total trip was about 10 hrs. That was due to a 3 hr stop in Tampere.
The train stopped at Tampere from 11:30pm to 2:30am to switch cars and engines. It was a great chance to get out and walk the city. Tampere has a beautiful district along the river. The buildings were lite up in an enchanting way.
We really enjoyed our stroll through the city.
Back on the train at 2:00am to try and get some sleep. the rooms were comfortable and included a nice shower. The room was clean and came with towels and shower soap. The caption to the photo below is a very brief tour of the berth.
For some people the motion of the train is soothing and lulls them to sleep.
Unfortunately I am a really light sleeper and did not get any that night.
The trains are nice. Next time I would take day train.
We didn’t try out the dining car since we got on around 9:30pm and were off at 8am.
