Traveling by train by itself is an experience, and sleeping on one can be part of that experience. I would like to know if there is a website or other reosource that list trains with sleeping car.

Doesn't need to be fancy luxorious trains.

I am interested in Europe but if a resource exists with more regions that would be a plus.

Which region are you interested in? I doubt there is any world-wide database of such trains, so it will need to be narrowed to a specific region. – Flimzy Apr 29 '14 at 21:52

seat61 isn't good enough? – Mark Mayo Apr 30 '14 at 5:21
@MarkMayo I have no idea. I will check it. – nsn Apr 30 '14 at 7:23
@MarkMayo. Thanks for the tip. It's a good resource, with lots information but not so good organization. At least for what I am looking for. – nsn Apr 30 '14 at 8:49

Have a look at the website The Man in Seat 61.

He's tried to put together an incredible wealth of information on train travel, the options, routes, and facilities of different journeys around the world.

I used it for European travel, a trip last year across America, and for planning of my Russia travels as well. Very handy reference resource!

The best online listing of sleeper trains I know of is RailDude. For example the Germany page lists all the night trains available passing through Germany, you can click on one to see the timetable, type of accomodation, prices etc.

seat61 has a lot of info but it's more of a guidebook than a listing of trains, and is focused on getting from the UK to places rather then getting around Europe.

Another option is to purchase a copy of the European Rail Timetable(search google for 'European Rail Timetable')

Finally, for checking specific routes go to and just search the route(the site is run by Deutsche Bahn but covers most of Europe), giving a departure time in the evening. Sleeper trains will come up as EN(Euronight), CNL(CityNightLine) or D in the Product Column
