bicycle on train SE1 and SE3

Posted by bikercj on 19/12/2008 at 06:09

We will have bicycles to take on these trains, SE1 from Hanoi - Hue; and SE3 from Danang - HCMCity (Saigon). Both are night trains.

1. How must we prepare the bicycles?
2. Will they be on the train we are on?

Hi Caroline,
The trains normally put motorbikes in a separate car (but still connected to your train), I'd assume the same would go for bicycles.

Thanks Somtam2000. We've been told that it is possible that the bikes would be put on another train.

That is what we want to avoid; we'd like to feel as certain as possible that there's a baggage car on the train we ride, and that the bikes are riding along with us.

Anyone know for SURE?

I'm sure you've already experienced this situation, but just in case:

Just found this forum/thread and wanted a legitimate answer to your question. My bicycle WAS loaded on another train. I had to wait 2 nights without my bicycle. I worried the whole time through! In the end, my bicycle made it through in one piece :D
