The Caledonian sleeper shows us the future

As consumers move relentlessly from buying things to paying for experiences, one thing I expect to start doing well is Sleeper trains, certainly in Europe. A couple of years ago this suggestion would have been laughable as it looked as though their time was over. Yet, I am writing this in the dining lounge of a sleeper train heading from London to the north of Scotland. After supper and a taste or two of whisky with friends, I will retire and return in the morning for breakfast as we hurry through the Scottish highland scenery as dawn is breaking.
