Does anyone know where I can find a map just showing the night trains between cities in Europe? Or direct routes.

I'm trying to plan what train routes to take, using the thomascook timetable, but I'm finding it really difficult. For example, how the hell can I get from Barcelona to Nice in less than about 2 weeks!?

Thanks for your help.

Hi, have found the below site quite useful, is a general train timetable one for europe and should let u know night train routes as well.

Leave Barca a bit after 7, to Cerbere (i.e. French border station). Have a couple of beers in the admittedly small station bar in the hour and a bit wait and then direct night train from there to Nice. Dead easy!

Using a Thomas Cook and the site Nicola listed (German railways - the best and most reliable for all Western European journeys) should solve all your problems, but if your struggling on specific journeys, just post here or send me a PM and i'll let you know the options etc.
