Pros
IconGood service
Cons
IconTrain failure
Unfortunately, the train broke down shortly after I started, so I had to change trains at a small station and the entire route had to be re-planned. However, the staff at the station helped me very well. As I arrived at my destination over an hour late, I also received a small refund.
