Train from Zagreb to Ljubljana

Has anyone taken the train from Zagreb to Ljubljana? Any trouble crossing the border? Need to reserve a seat to guarantee seating? Luggage space on the train?

Well, reserving is the only way to guarantee it, but it's probably not necessary

And on these trains, perhaps not even possible. (Could depend on which train it is.)

I take the Zagreb -Ljubljana train every October on route to Germany. If you are going further into Austria or Germany you can pre-book on the Bahn.de website of the German rail network. Seniors qualify for big discounts. The border crossing passport check at the Slovenian border takes about 15 minutes and they come on the train - Croatia stamps your passport to exit, and Slovenia stamps your passport to enter the European Union Schengen Zone. No problems. In first class there is plenty of room for your luggage overhead in your compartment and you are often alone. No-one goes first class on this route any more, but I love it. I pre-book a window seat. Second class is full of students and locals, and looks pretty crowded. Other trains (not my early morning #112/212 express to Germany) may be a different story. Buying tickets a day or two in advance at the staton may be wise. I love this train route, misty mornings ...
