comment Recourse to SNCF after missing ferry due to delayed train
@Gagravarr In theory, CIV rules apply even with separately-booked tickets. However they only apply to ferries if booked on a through ticket with a train journey. So they don't apply here, but you might try the argument with SNCF anyway.

comment Minimal walking distance when changing at Orleans on train journey: Tours-Orléans-Paris Austerlitz
@mkennedy The trains from Tours go to Orléans, not to Les Aubrais. TGV and long-distance trains transit through Les Aubrais but there are also trains from Orléans to Paris-Austerlitz. I don't know what Wikipedia page you checked, it's probably incomplete, especially if you used the English site. Look up train schedules to get reliable information.

comment Minimal walking distance when changing at Orleans on train journey: Tours-Orléans-Paris Austerlitz
@Ooberdan Hmm, the mistranslation of “walk” here (“promenade” means a walk as in talking a walk for leisure, not walking to a specific destination) might cause people not to understand you. You could ask “À Orléans, faut-il changer de quai pour le train pour Paris ?” (In Orleans, do I need to change platforms for the train to Paris?) But I recommend that you speak English (slowly and distinctly), there's a better chance that you'll be understood and you'll understand the answer.
