Train Schedule from Lyon to Chamonix June 2009

I'm trying to obtain the schedule for Lyon to Chamonix on 6/19/09 and am using the "Bahn.de" website (which I regularly use regardless of which county in Europe). I keep getting the message that no service exists for that day or the day before or after. Anyone have any idea as to why not? Could it be that the schedules haven't been released yet for these dates? I would think that a little more than 3 months out they would be. Any advice would be great.

Thanks.

voyages-sncf.com shows trains for that date via St. Gervais les Bains le Fayet.

New timetables will go into effect on 13 June. For complete current timetables for Lyon-Chamonix, enter a date prior to that on the DB site. The new timetables probably won't vary by more than a few minutes, if at all.

And you always have to change from mainline trains at St Gervais, from normal-gauged rails to narrow-gauged trains to Chamonix. The St Gervais-Chamonix is one of just 3 narrow-gauge train lines operated by the SNCF - a toy like train that stops every few miles.
