Hi, my hubby and I will be travelling to Scotland with an 8 week old possibly on Caledonian sleeper howeve unsure on where baby will sleep. Looking to get a twin berth. Anybody travelled this way before?
Would a pram with bassinet fit in berth so she could sleep in that?
I traveled last year -I use a rollator and it had to be folded to get through the corridor and wouldn’t have fitted in the cabin so I don’t think a pram would work. Bassinet only, or car seat might fit but no way of securing it so not a good idea. There are new trains planned but no idea when they will be in service. Other than sleeping in berth with baby, I think the only solution would be to ask to use disabled bunk-obviously if not already in use by a disabled traveller- as it has bigger floor area and is beside train door so you don’t need to travel down corridor. I found Caledonian very helpful so it is worth phoning and asking for advice. Good luck 😀
There's a section on here that explains about travel cots.
If you're travelling after October there will be new carriages with double beds and family suites. You'll find the accommodation more spacious then but even in the current trains, you can get a pop up cot that will fit.
