Egyptian train travel

How is train travel (Cairo to Aswan) in Egypt, particularly overnight?

Most tourists opt for the 10pm train to Luxor and Aswan which leaves from platform 8. I usually go second class (46 EGP), which is fine for most. It gives you reclining seats with plenty of legroom. Arrives in Luxor around 6:30 am, then slowly goes to Aswan, arriving around 1pm.

My brother and I travelled via train from Cairo to Aswan. We did so first class and found the accomodations to be very comfortable and the service was very good. We had decent meals and lots of fun at the bar car that night.
Enjoy your trip!
