Sleeper trains typically have four berth compartments (occasionally six berth depending on seasonal variations and group configuration), which have bench seats that convert into sleeping bunks. A sheet, pillow and blanket are provided, although some travelers prefer to bring their own sleeping sheet. On occasion, passengers of different genders will be required to share a compartment and there will be times where you'll be sharing with local travelers or others who are not part of your group. Some trains have a dining carriage serving simple food or snack carts, but travelers tend to prefer to take some of their own snacks (bread, cookies, fruit etc.) in case of getting the munchies.
