Environment first!

I take the train as often as possible, for convenience and for environmental reasons. Currently interrailing in central Europe. Night trains are very practical, saves time and hotel costs.

This is an important issue as in the long term travel by rail will become more economical then the one by plane or car, in particular when energy prizes will increase due to shortage of oil,
As a short term measure. airplane fuel should be taxed just like car fuel and subsidies of airports should be stopped. This would render train travel more attractive as compared to other, less ecological means of transport.

as long as we do not have any fair competition, long distance trains will not have a real chance to survive. So, when our elected political representants will repair this system fault by forcing all airlines to pay standart taxes on flight fuel ( F 40  etc ) ?  Also it is absolute nessessary to check european wide smaller airfields on their ROI, resp. operating without any govermental subsidising.

If this would have been done about 10 years ago, we would ride much more comfortable trains as we do wright now, because all those € 1 companies as Ryan Air, Easyjet etc. etc would not have been survived.

Thanxs to the Gods that at least Russia ( RZD ) goes a different way with it´s almost direct train from Moskva Bjelorusskaya to Paris Gare du Est.

Me and my wife use it almost every year. It's the best option with the bicycle.

sj + dsb are most late + unflexibel. i missed several times my connections + was late. most trains from germany ends in copenhagen on platform 26, that means carrying your baggage upstais, over a busy street an downstairs to reech the centralstaion, most no information, only in danish, not to understand, no english.

Since many years, we sell CNL trips to all destinations - our customers mainly prefer these trains because of the bicycle transportation. If these trains die, European railway companies will lose many customers ! Do they really want that ?

It is a very important train for cyclists and their bicycles

Hopefully the night services will remain or come back. We travelled from the Netherlands to Copenhagen by night-train. As long as the trip during the day takes so much time because of the large detour and/or ferry, its definitely the best way to go there. When faster day-services appear (for example because of a new Fehrmarn belt bridge) it's more logical that night trains will dissapear, although I will regret.

The DB don´t want people to use trains!

For people in the nordic the nighttrains are golden route to Europe if you don't want to fly. And should be promoted not shut down, more flying is not the future.

Train as often as possible instead of flight.
Of course! I want many coming generations to be able to live on the Earth!!

As a professional in cycle tourism in Scandinavia, I can not stress the importance of this night train enough. It is a frequently used connections by cycle tourists to and from Scandinavia and of utmost importance for the industry. Stopping this line would seriously affect the development of cycle tourism in Danmark and southern Sweden.

also, these long-distance trains are the only ones to take bicycles. Night trains from Brussels have already been dropped years ago in favour of high speed and it makes international bicycle travel almost impossible.

I would like DB Autozug to consider to change their decition about the cartrains It is crazy to shut them down instead of developing

Nachtzüge machen doch das Reisen erst interessant. Nur sollte man dieses auch mal kommunizieren. Und flexibel sollte es werden. Von mir aus mit guten Angeboten für Mietwagen, WoMo's in Skandinavien oder Autozüge. Oder was auch immer.
Wenn man die Strecken aber immer weiter ausdünnt, verprellt man auch die Kunden, da es keine Verlässlichkeit mehr gibt. So entsteht ein Teufelskreis. Gebt den Leuten eine Möglichkeit, zu reisen, nicht nur anzukommen.

Der Fahrradplatz im CNL nach Kopenhagen ist schon lange eine Schande! Es werden zudem mehr Plätze verkauft als möglich ist. Das Personal meint lakonisch "Fahrräder auf dem Zug sollten verboten werden!:" die DB gibt sich alle Mühe die CNL Fahrgäste zu vertreiben ! Was war doch der dunkelblaue Zug mit goldene Sternen mal für ein Reiseerlebnis!!!

The best way to travel for long distances - even with your bike!
