Not only Prague: RegioJet European Sleeper preparing Ostend – Warsaw night train

In the basement Warsaw Central.

Night train news! European Sleeper is not only looking for a train path from Ostend in Belgium to Prague in Czechia via Brussels, Antwerp, Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Berlin (Germany), but also a train path to Warsaw in Poland.

Night trains or sleeper trains are booming. Besides the Dutch company European Sleeper, there’s also the Belgian company Moonlight Express

European Sleeper is working closely together with the Czech train operator RegioJet

The notification to the Dienst Regulering van het spoorwegvervoer en van de Exploitatie van de Luchthaven Brussel-Nationaal / Service de Régulation du Transport ferroviaire et de l’Exploitation de l’Aéroport de Bruxelles-National or Regulatory Service for Rail Transport and the Operation of Brussels-National Airport has also been made public.

The document gives a proposal for a train path:

  • Oostende (Ostend),
  • Brugge (Bruges), 
  • Gent-Sint-Pieters (Ghent St. Peter’s), 
  • Brussel-Zuid (BrusselsSouth/Midi),
  • Brussel-Centraal (Brussels-Central), 
  • Antwerpen-Centraal (Antwerp-Central),
  • Roosendaal, 
  • Rotterdam Centraal (Rotterdam Central), 
  • Den Haag Hollands Spoor (The Hague Holland Rail), 
  • Schiphol, 
  • Amsterdam Centraal (Amsterdam Central Station) OR Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA, 
  • Deventer, 
  • Bad Bentheim, 
  • Hannover Hbf (Hannover Main Station), 
  • Berlin Hbf (Berlin Main Station), 
  • Dresden-Neustadt (Dresden New Town), 
  • Dresden Hbf (Dresden Main Station), 
  • Bad Schandau, 
  • Děčín hl.n, 
  • Ústí nad Labem hl.n, 
  • Praha-Holešovice,
  • Praha hl.n.

The Warsaw route with have the train split in Berlin Hbf and then go to 

  • Berlin Ostbahnhof (Berlin East Station), 
  • Frankfurt (Oder), 
  • Rzepin, 
  • Świebodzin,
  • Poznań Główny (Poznań Main Station), 
  • Września, 
  • Konin, 
  • Kutno, 
  • Łowicz Główny (Łowicz Main Station), 
  • Warszawa Zachodnia (Warsaw West),
  • Warszawa Centralna (Warsaw Central),
  • Warszawa Wschodnia (Warsaw East).

Splitting trains is nothing uncommon. I remember the night train we took from Belgrade in Serbia to Zurich in Switzerland with a stopover in Zagreb in Croatia

This Belgrade – Zurich link (EN 414) is a complicated cocktail of trains and rolling stock, combining the B 412, the EN 414 and the Nightjet 464. We think none of the coaches leaving Belgrade actually go to Zurich. So shunting is nothing to be scared of.
