Okay, that is a long title. I feel like Im’m introducing and American sporting evenement with many sponsors and brand names. Anyway. European Sleeper, a new railway operator from the Netherlands, is planning a night train service between Ostend and Prague. This train will be operated by RegioJet, from Czechia.
Tuesday was a big day for rail news. Privateers European Sleeper from the Netherlands and Moonlight Express from Belgium announced night train services from Brussels to Berlin. Earlier, the Austrian Federal Railway carrier ÖBB (with its Nightjet brand) also showed interest in linking Brussels to Berlin. Are three sleeper services too much? Perhaps not.
European Sleeper and RegioJet could become an Ostend – Amsterdam – Prague night train. For RegioJet, it would be a logical decision. Treinreiziger.nl spoke to the Czech discount rail operator.
On the same day as Moonlight Express announced it would start a night train service between Brussels and Berlin via Liège, European Sleeper announced its destination: Brussels, Antwerp and Amsterdam to Prague in Czechia via Berlin and Dresden in Germany.
Entrepreneurs Louis-Philippe Lammertyn and Louis De Jaeger from Belgium have started Moonlight Express, a company which will offer night train services between Brussels, Liège and Berlin. They keep in mind Eurostar connections so travellers can go easily from London to Berlin.
European Sleeper Coöperatie U.A. is set to launch a sleeper train service from the Netherlands and Belgium in April 2022. In April 2021 the company will announce destination.
