Always remember to don't take with you a very big luggage, because the space in the compartiment is not very much...
On the train the best is wearing a sport suite, and a pair of slippers.
take your money and documents always with you.
once you're in your place, the lady will pass to take your ticket and (if the trip is more than 1 day long) to give you the blanckets for the night (you'll have to pay for them, but not much).
she knows where you'll have to arrive, and she will call you about 1 hour before than the arriving...there are 2 ladies on each vagon, who will care about sleeps and one works, on turn....unfortunately, probably they won't speak will be very funny trying to communicate with them :-)
