Trip was nice, clean bar and good comfort overall note: We read about "check in 45 minutes in advance" at the Helsinki railway station. This was not necessary, when the train arrived in the station, and the booking was completed, you could jump on it like an other regular train. The check (boarding passes) was during the trip, on board of the train.

Great trip, but it should be made clear on the ticket where the train leaves from. We went to the wrong Station after being told by three separate people (locals).
