OK, I'm in the "dream" planning stages for my next trip to Europe. Prague and Vienna is a contender.
So I get this Deutsche Bahn (DB) app for my iPhone and type in a hypothetical trip for tomorrow. All I really want to understand is how these stations, connection, etc work.
Attached is a screen shot. The way I understand it is this:
1) Train leaves from Prague hl.n station at 10:39 AM 2) I get on train "EC 77" headed towards Viener Neustadt Hbf 3) At 11:37, we stop at Pardubice hl.n 4) At 11:39, we head towards Ceska Trebova 5) At 12:17 we arrive at Ceska Trebova .....
Now what has me confused are the following:
1) Only `TWO` minutes in Pardubice hl.n. Does that mean people have two minutes to get off or board at that station? 2) At 14:58 we arrive Wien Simmering. Is that Vienna? Why do we have yet another hour before the destination? 3) Do the "Platf. 2" mean "Platform 2", etc? 4) Is "Wiener Neustadt Hbf" central Vienna or some major train station there?
Please pardon my ignorance. It's been over 10 years since I've been to Europe and I didn't ride many trains then (one from Paris to Brussels and one from London to Paris).
