    Yes, so long as she can just look after and take care of herself.

    Just as safe as anywhere.  Late at night people will look for somewhere to stretch out and snooze.  If you can find a spot, you can claim it easily enough.

    I've never ridden that route, but I have a single friend who travels alone by train without event.

    She tells me she takes a window seat and puts her stuff on the seat next to it, moving it only if the train is full and conductors ask all unused seats to be cleared.

    There's probably more risk when you get off in the middle of the night than while you're on board, where other passengers would come to your aid if need be. Make sure you have an app for a ride to your hotel already loaded, so you can arrange for someone to meet you rather than waiting outside for a cab, Uber, or Lyft.
