Determining train schedules

How do I figure out the train schedules for France, including Paris, Switzerland, and Germany. I have gone to many website but all seem geared for buying tickets. I need to figure out what times trains leave and when they get in, including all my options.

Suggestions?

Also, is there a map of the Paris train stations with names?

The German rail site is good for info and schedules for all of Europe.

www.bahn.de
click on TIMETABLES in the column on the left for English.

The SNCF.COM site also allows you to ask for time tables from a departure point to an arrival point.

Both the German site and the Dutch site are excellent (http://www.ns.nl/international/index.cgi for the Dutch site).

Swiss time tables can be found at www.sbb.ch , click on english, or just enter from/von and to/nach to get ideas of travel times and number of train changes required. Earlier connections are "frueher" and later "spaeter".
