Usually if you book into a hotel or hostel at the destination they will let you go have a shower in the morning. I am only 26 so hostels are usually where I stay. Also if all you have done is sit in an air conditioned train for a day you really don't smell.

I think the main issue with night trains' image is just lack of awareness. Many people I know have never heard of the concept and are pleasantly surprised when they try one. It is quite easy to sleep on a moving train, the noise and motion are relatively constant. I would have there was a market to the coastal areas of Croatia, they are very popular with German and Austrian holidaymakers.

Oh, you can be without a shower for 6 nights even. There is such a thing as "washing".

This is a transportation forum with people with various backgrounds and interests. I'm not a "fan" of anything. I just use emotion-less, objective arguments do counteract the "let's all bow in awe of the rails" atmosphere some people try to push here.
However, when we come with emotion-less facts to counteract some of your prejudices you resist them with everything you have.

One "emotion less" fact is that those "abominations" of yours are popular enough that they book out months in advance sometimes.
