Remarks & Notes 
Death of the overnight trains

This is the Berlin-Paris night train. Operated by the German DB, it is marketed as a "City Night Line" train. But it belongs to a dying species in western Europe: the night passenger train, with sleeping cars and "couchettes" (bunks). The Paris-Berlin night train is a survivor that will cease to exist in December 2014.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
