The Romancecar services by the Odakyu Railway in Japan... The line connects Shinjuku in Tokyo with various tourist areas towards Mt. Fuji to the southwest. The trains with passengers seats at the front of the train (only the type 7000 and 50000 trains are currently in operation) are primary used on train services to Hakone. The schedule identifies which ...

This is covered in the Frequently Asked Questions about Advance fares section of the National Rail Enquiries (internal) Knowledgebase (iKB), which isn't available online officially. However, one of the nice members of Rail UK Forums posted that to their site earlier in response to a different query. The relevant question in the FAQ is this: Q22 - Can a ...

Except for a few special cases, a ticket to London Terminals is only valid until you reach your first of the London Terminals. It is almost never valid by tube. As explained on the National Rail Enquiries website in the London Terminals section Tickets issued for travel to/from London usually show 'London Terminals' as the destination/origin rather than ...

When? As a general rule, reservations for a given train open at 10am (Japanese time) one month before departure. For example, reservations for a train departing on May 20 open at 10am on April 20. Reservations close when the train departs. Some things to note: If there is no "matching day" in the previous month, reservations open on the first day of the ...

The London Overground is part of the national rail network (here). According to the previous answer ("Through domestic or international tickets"), connections on the national rail network allow those on an advance ticket to continue on the next available train. However, they also technically need to verify that you were actually on the delayed train (it is ...

Here is a forum thread where it is claimed that U1256 means a single connecting Underground journey in zones 1-6, whereas a ticket with an attached Travelcard would be issued as London zones 1-6. Presumably what this means technically is that your ticket works as a single Underground ticket. Arriving at London Bridge you will go out through the NR gateline ...

This one definitely does not tick all the boxes, but as asked by the OP, here comes an historic example: The SNCF X3800 "Picasso" (more details in french) was used from 1950 to 1988 in France. However, it definitely does not qualify for "high-speed" (top speed 120 km/h). It is still in use on a few heritage railway lines (see french Wikipedia page linked ...

In a nutshell Only base fare tickets allow stopovers (途中下車, tochū gesha); tickets for additional fees such as limited express fees and seat reservation fees do not. In addition, only base fare tickets for trips of over 100 kilometers allow stopovers. However, base fare tickets for travel within one of five special city zones (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, ...

First a reminder: whether one posseses a rail pass such as the Japan Rail Pass has no effect on seat reservation requirements. If reservation is required, it remains so if you have a rail pass. Of course, a rail pass usually allows you to make reservations free of charge, but it is still necessary to visit the ticket office to make your reservation. (Note ...

Regular tickets to Brussels bought in the Benelux (i.e. not the special Thalys, Eurostar, etc. international tickets) are typically marked as “Zone Bruxelles”. The English-language version only has a definition but the French-language website of the Belgian railways lists the following stations as part of the “Brussels zone”: Berchem-Ste-Agathe, ...

There is no train station at Tegel airport. You best shot is to take the TXL Jet Express bus http://www.berlin-airport.de/en/travellers-txl/to-and-from/buses-and-trains/local-public-transport/ to the central station (Hauptbahnhof). There are plenty of train connections to Halle. Every two hours there is a non stop high speed train that does the trip in a ...

As I thought after a look on a map, there are options to travel by trains without going through Paris. At a random date and time from the French SNCF site: 09H05 RENNES to 10H16 LE MANS change 10H43 LE MANS to 11H43 ST PIERRE DES CORPS change 12H03 ST PIERRE DES CORPS to 12H42 POITIERS Or, (this time from the German website) Rennes ...

Which Stations Are Accessible? TMB says that all the Metro network is wheelchair accessible, except for a few stations (15 out of 156). These tend to be the older/non-recently-refurbished stations. The Barcelona Metro map lists them: This website lists all the stations with lifts. Locating Lifts TMB also says that you can locate accessible stations ...

In other words: is there a policy that a document used in a train booking must also be acceptable for entry and exit from Russia? No, there is no written policy for that. The only thing you should be aware of is the conductor during the board check validates your document and ticket. The document number and your names in it must be the same as in your ...

Yes, you will be offered food for free in the Nizzamuddin Eruklam Express (12284) as you are already charged in ticket. For evidence see the screenshot below which I took in the IRCTC website while booking ticket for the same train. To answer your second question the train usually reaches Manglore on time.

Indeed, the French transportation network is organised very centrally around Paris. Looking at the map of the recent (it might change rapidly) intercity bus connections provided by comparabus.com (some website to book buses) and the train network maps provided by the SNCF for Intercités and TGVs, it looks clear that most trains and buses are centered around ...

The different types of waiting lists are: GNWL: General Waiting List RLWL: Remote Location Waiting List PQWL: A Pooled Quota Waiting List RLGN: Remote Location General Waiting List RSWL: Roadside Station Waiting List RQWL: Request Waiting List CKWL or Tatkal waiting list An article in trainman.in website explains about these waiting lists as follows : ...

It all depends on exactly when you are going to travel. There is a bus taking 25 minutes from Frankfurt Airport to Darmstadt Hbf (central station), but since the bus usually only departs once an hour you might be sooner in Darmstadt if you use a train connection or bus/train combination via Mainz, Neu Isenburg or Frankfurt Hbf (some 45 to 60 minutes). You ...

As chx pointed out, you will need to clarify what "best" is. Cheaper? Faster? Most convenient? Most frequent? I'll concentrate on the train part. There are two train stations in CDG: "Aéroport Charles de Gaulle 1" is only served by the "RER" (suburban train / express metro). It is located in "Roissypôle", which is about halfway between Terminal 1 and ...

The answer to your question is no. Practically, your option is to tolerate the maximum fare [in breach of the TfL conditions of carriage] and claim a refund, which will be granted unless you make a habit out of it. 6.8.5 [...] If you do not touch in at the start and touch out at the end of your journey, you may be charged a maximum fare and this journey ...

I think you should look for the disabled metro map, which is easily to find on google. I would explain more but I think the image says pretty much all. You will have to zoom to read which stations have "annoying stairs" and stations with elevator. About the steps that separate the ticket barriers and the platform, you can't really know, but I highly ...

Given the designation of the train it is unlikely that Georgian Railway system will give you anything different than the Azerbaijan's Railway booking system so there are no other stops between Rustavi and Tbilisi. As far as Tbilisi-Uzl is concerned it actually is short for "Тбилиси Узловая" (Tbilisi Hub for lack of better translation) which is a name for a ...

Going to the official TrenItalia site as of today (end of April) for mid June: I see there is essentially one travel solution where you first take a fast train from Florence to Rome and then a sleeper to Tropea (so I didn't bother checking for the return). You have to choose your type of seats/beds so make sure you get to this page by clicking on the ...

S-Bahn is an urban commuter train, most stops are just a few kilometres apart. Typically they depart every 10 or 20 minutes, depending on the line and the time of day. RE is a regional commuter train, often stops are a few dozen kilometres apart. Typically they depart every 30 or 60 minutes. The RE will be faster, but not if you have to wait for it. The ...

Does not tick the first point, but here goes... ICE T, ICE 3 and ICE 3M from Germany (ICE T, Germany, Wikimedia) (View from behind the driver in an ICE T, Germany, Wikimedia) Is the driver cab sitting on top of the first carriage, or fully automated? Neither. The driver sits in front, with a transparent partition. The driver has a switch to make the ...

I'm Serbian and have crossed the Romanian border several times to go to the Timișoara airport which is conveniently close to my home town. I've never had problems myself, but I have the need to point out this particular border is infamous in my home area as being quite unpredictable. What follows is based on stories I've heard, so take it with a grain of ...

The quick answer is yes, you can. Read on for the details What to get You have to get your JR pass from your home country before you leave for Japan, they're not for sale there ! Here's a list of dealers, search for your region and buy it there. The green car is not necessary unless you want it, it's like a first class train. How it works Once you ...

I think in theory you can. But you must present same ID to the conductor as you've used to book a train. In practice chances are pretty high that you would be denied boarding by the conductor if you try to use something that does not look like a passport. Overall, it's highly recommended to have your passport with you at all times in Russia. Especially if ...

Rome2Rio says that you can get a Eurolines bus from Paris CDG to Calais. The journey lasts approximately 5 hours and is significantly cheaper than the train. Below is a screenshot from Rome2Rio: Eurolines agrees with this. Buses run to Calais Centre Ville, Calais Ferry, and Calais-Cité-Europe. Below is a sample quote for CDG to Calais Centre:
