    The biggest problem is that the "Options" are either LD Trains where the Sleepers are "Sold OUT", or 3 times a Week Trains that means you are stranded for 2 days awaiting Connections! This is especially True with the LD Trains that originate inExpense! which is the only place you can connect...
