There was a train for Harare on Platform 1 and the Victoria Falls train on Platform 4.
Travellers should allow plenty of time to get to the train as the platforms are very long and the Victoria Falls train was at the far end of its platform.
The sleeping-cars are all British-built, the ones with wood-panelled interiors in Gloucester in 1952, the ones with the less attractive formica interiors in Birmingham in 1958.
Although they now carry National Railways of Zimbabwe insignia, they are still painted in the original 'Rhodesia Railways' colours, and windows and mirrors are etched with the 'RR' logo.
We kept the windows open during the night even though it was cold (July).
We watched the beautiful countryside go by in the morning.
The bunk was perfectly comfortable and I had a reasonable nights sleep, waking up briefly when we passed the southbound sleeper at around 2am.The blind in my cabin did not work but the windows in the cabin and in the corridor easily opened for taking photographs/taking in the scenery.I note a recent correspondent managed to getting bedding this was not available on my train so I wonder whether if it depends on the crew or which of the two trains you are on.The coaches were in OK condition when I travelled myself in 2001, but admittedly have been let go a bit lately and are now fairly decrepit, given Zim's economic circumstances.
