    Does the train need to have a cargo carriage?how early would we have to be at the station to do this?we can't speak any Vietnamese but would hand gestures & maybe basic vietnamese words explaining what we want work?if not then where could we meet someone that could help translate what we are trying to do?the se5 leaves ninh binh at 18:06.we really want this train.can we take our bikes on this one?thanks very much for your help
