How can I take this train? It hasn't seats on the öbb website. Should I just ask at the counter in Bucuresti?

Pass reservations can only be booked at a Romanian ticket office.

There are no seats to Istanbul/Halkali. Bucharest-Halkali is only 1 couchette carriage.

That means at the ticket counter at Bucuresti Nord?
Is there enough space to reserve a couchette?

Any ticket office in Romania that can do international reservations:

The best is to try at the first Romanian ticket office you get to.

I just saw that this reservation can be booked via Deutsche Bahn this year after all:

It does look like you'll need an experienced staff member to book it.
