train schedules web page?

I though I had saved the web page for train schedules in Europe but seem to have misplaced this. Can anyone help?
Also can i find out about fares on the web?

try www.eurorail.com and www.raileurope.com. Sometimes you can get the fares through these websites. Good luck

There is a slight variation on the site that Wes lists:
http://www.hafas.de/index_e.html
If you will look to the right side of the screen after you load it, you will see links to 4 systems.
The German and the Swiss web schedules are the best.
The last I looked, the Austrian site was only in German, but the German and Swiss sites have English versions and both are comprehensive. The British site is for trains in Britain only; typically insular.
The French national train system, with those great TGV's, is at this location, in English:
http://www.sncf.com/indexe.htm
By the way, booking on the French system from here works. I reserved two seats on the TGV from Paris to Lausanne, Switzerland, over the web. I took my printout and got my tickets in Paris with little trouble.
Unfortunately, the national sites to not give international fares as a general rule. You can get an indication from Rail Europe, but RE charges about 25% more for the same ticket. I paid 63.72 Euros per ticket, senior rate first class seat, for the trip from Paris to Lausanne. That comes out to about $55 per ticket at the rate of exchange in effect at the time. The senior rate knocked off about 25% and is available to anyone who can prove that he or she is over 62.

A meta-site of every rail web site for every country in Europe:
