My son unfortunately ended up sitting with a lady who has hygiene issues. Although he is thought not to judge, sitting that close to someone without an option to remove yourself from the situation was unpleasant. She also proceeded to drink heavily from alcohol she had packed in her bag. The whole situation made him uncomfortable.

Polite staffs in rail station and also in train as well as clean and calm car were the positive points. As I was new comer and don't have credit or debit card, I could not order coffee or buy a bottle of water by cash! It made me unhappy.
