已有hard seat (coach)之说。
cushioned berth:软铺
其中还有很多细分和其他说法。
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

What is a semi-cushioned berth? Is it cushioned or uncushioned? Or one half is cushioned, while the other half not? It will be very hard to picture such a berth according to what the term implies. I  guess you probably mean " a hard sleeping berth", which, in Chinese, is 硬卧.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?
