    I had the pleasure of Richard Branson’s Virgin Trains this evening.

    Normally I am a big fan, especially of their super-duper fast services and delicious on board nosh.

    However, I often feel somewhat unwell after travelling on these trains.

    Previously I put it down to overindulging with the free G&T.

    However I abstained on this trip and still feel a tad under the weather on stepping off.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Ive been on the Pendolino between Milan and Zurich. The scenery is great, but the motion of the train can cause a feeling of sea sickness. Old wives tale says you should plenty of crackers before you board this train.

    I am not sure how crackers would help?

    Can’t say I’ve felt ill on them, but they do feel rather cramped compared to other mainline trains.

    DoS, If you’re referring to the Cisalpino, I fully agree with you. They are cramped in comparison and though I don’t suffer from motion sickness on them, my wife does and so she has sympathy for both VK and Crazy. I must admit though, after an hour or so I’m glad to get off.

    Travelworld, I’ll pass your tip on and see if it works.

    The Swiss Railroad tilting trains are a different kettle of fish however, with the carriages having the same amount of space as the regular trains. If taking the train from Milan to Zurich (or vv) I recommend these ones over the Italian ones any day.

    As a bonus they also run on time but tend to terminate in either Lugano or Chiasso.

    I was thinking of the Virgin train, to be honest.

    Wiki has a couple of interior px, if you scoll down and look on the LHS.

    Have you any links for Cisalpino?

    Oh canucklad, thank you for that, I needed a laugh… And yes, I know it is poor form to laugh at another’s misfortune, but that really was a funny read!
