The company has Europe's largest fleet of sleeper trains and hopes to double the number of its overnight passengers from 1.5 million to three million by 2030.The new trains feature a modern design, more privacy and more shower facilities. It will be phased in on other routes in Austria, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland. OeBB's Berlin-Paris night train service is to return on December 11, nine years after it was cancelled.
