I will probably take the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth in February, and was wondering if anyone has taken the train before. Most likely will be travelling in "Red Service Sleeper Cabin" (3rd class?).
I had a look on tripadvisor.com but could not find any (good) pictures for the cabins. Do they have power outlets in the cabins or lounge there so I can charge my camera or laptop during the trip, or is this only available in 2nd and first class? Is there anything else I should bring for the trip that makes the journey easier or more pleasant?
is there any advantage in booking ahead, or can I just show up on the station and buy the tickets for the next train?
