I'm the opposite. The train noises keep me up most of the night, even with earbuds and sleeping pills. The only time I've ever slept more than a couple of hours is on the second night of the trip. At that point, I'm so tired that I'm able to sleep for six hours or so, only waking up when we stop at a brightly-lit station or the stupid PA announcements start (I REALLY miss being able to turn that thing off).
