- "Stolen tickets" Jane s. 04/08/2013
In preparation for my Eastern European adventure I purchased Berlin - Poznan return tickets well in advance, which were stolen from my room in a 5 star Hotel in Moscow. Whilst I appreciate that lost tickets are at the owner's risk I was unhappy that in the event of theft that my tickets could not be cancelled and re-issued. The trip from Berlin - Poznan was late and average to below average by European standards of comfort in First Class. The return trip was on time and crowded with stressed staff giving rude service in the dining car. I decided to take my refreshments back to the compartment. The service was however convenient with choice of four departure times and close rail track to the exits at the Hoptbanhof in Berlin, and confusing arrival of the train and confused station staff in Pozan which will be improved when the new station is completed and operating. Value for money Convenience
