Websites for European train schedules!

Hello!

Does anyone know a nice website that lists the train schedules for trains in Europe, especially France and Italy? Do the schedules change much from low season to high season? Grazie!

Matt-
The official Italian train website is: www.fs-on-line.com. You can also get schedules at www.raileurope.com. Interestingly enough, the schedules listed at these two sites are not exactly the same. There is usually a diference of 2-3 minutes on either the departure or arrival time (never both). However, if you use it as a guide you should be fine.

For Italy it's better to use fs-on-line because RailEurope doesn't list all the trains. One example I once found was the Rome-Naples train, RailEurope's 1st train listed was really the 7th out that morning (~3+hr difference). But RailEurope is good for fare info on the Es/IC trains. Regards, Walter
p.s. you might want to check out an official French train schedule site perhaps RailEurope has schedule problems there also.

Matt,
For the french train service, go to :
voyages.sncf.fr/voyages_gb/acgb_accueil.html
It's well done.

The German rail site at http://bahn.hafas.de is one of the best. They have English pages.

Matt, I used the german railsite mentioned above http://bahn.hafas.de for our entire trip including Belguim, Switzerland, Austria and Germany and it was great! The times were 100% accurate and the trains really do run on time, atleast where we were. I found it only gave pricing info for destinations within Germany, but that didn't matter to us because we had Eurail Pass, anyway. I also printed out the schedules of all our various destinations which was a really great asset knowing the schedules so you can plan your day and allow enough time to get to the station, etc. I HIGHLY recommend doing that! Of all the information I took with me, having those train schedules was definitely the most valuable! Have a great trip!

this may sound like a dumb question, but if i buy tickets on line through sncf, how do i get my tickets? do they mail them overseas or what?

Andria,
No, they won't, but it means the reservation is made for you, and you've already paid for it. So if you show up at the booth, it's faster, and in case of a TGV you are sure to get a seat. Also, for most tickets -probably not eurorail-, you can get it from the automatic machines : this goes way faster in big train stations. Keep the reservation code, or you will have to pay again at the machine !
