Border control on night trains
On certain night trains, train staff will ask you to hand over your Eurail pass and passport at the start of your journey. Don't worry you'll get them back in the morning before you leave the train. This way train staff won't have to wake you up during the night at the border control when you enter another country, allowing you to get a good night’s rest before exploring your next destination.
