Baggage on Railjet Business Class

Thinking about travelling ZRH Flughafen-St Anton next January on Railjet Business Class. Travelling as a family of 4, with 3 large and 2-3 small suitcases. Will be taking a quadruple compartment on the train. Does anybody know if there is ample space in the overhead bins for our luggage, and if there isn't, is there a safe place we can put our luggage (near an attendant or next to us)? Not really make-or-break, but if there isn't enough secure space we might leave a few pcs of luggage back at the hotel in ZRH and pack differently.

Many thanks.

You won't be getting any "large" suitcases into overhead bins. Some pictures of the "compartments" here https://www.seat61.com/railjet.htm https://www.360cities.net/image/oebb....80,25.00,70.0

Looks like there isn't a lot of space to leave so many bags on the floor around your seats.

With a lot of luggage you may be better in normal 1st class rather than the business compartments. The normal 1st class carriages have luggage racks at the end of the carriage which are clearly visible.

Thanks for the info. Our large suitcases really aren't very big; they're about 70x50x30cm. Looks like you could fit a couple of those suitcases in the overhead bins. I remember fitting a 65x45x25cm suitcase in an ICE 1st class bin. There seems to be space for two carry-ons next to the seats.
