Please consider the following: Purchase the train ticket before boarding the train (it is not possible to purchase a ticket in the train). During rush hours, we further recommend booking 1st class seats. Last but not least: Please target the rear part of the train (e.g. wagon 11); the train often splits along the way. Information on the slits are displayed inside the train and also on the track; please ask the conductor in case of doubts.
