1. Can I book a ticket through internet although I am not a german resident?

2. If not can I get a ticket directly from the station on a thurday afternoon?

3. is there any arrangement to carry luggage (trolleys?) in the railway station in Frankfurt?

Please answer to help me.

www.bahn.de

From: FRA

To: Chemnitz

Why would it be important whether you are a German resident? All you need is being able to pay, and having a printer.

>2. If not can I get a ticket directly from the station on a thurday afternoon?

Of course you can too.

>3. is there any arrangement to carry luggage (trolleys?) in the railway station in Frankfurt?

What do you mean with an arrangement? And why do you need anything in the Frankfurt train station? Most probably you can take the train straight from the airport to Chemnitz or to Dresden.

Thanks for the response. I tried booking online for train tickets in bahn.de, but it is asking for ID card valid for Germany.

I need to change the train to Leipzig to go to Chemnitz from Frankfurt. Since I will be traveling with a lot of luggage, i wanted to know if train station like Leipzig has trolleys to carry luggage?

Your ID card is the credit card you pay the ticket with.That is what it asks for. You have to carry the very same credit card with you when travelling, it is checked together with the ticket on board the train to make sure the ticket is genuine.

Thanks a lot for the response. Is it possible to use a credit card which belongs to a different continent?

Credit cards don't belong "to a different continent". A VISA is a VISA is a VISA. Unless of course you try to pay with some exotic credit card brand which is only in use in India...

Its a globalized word.

As to luggage trolleys, the way to the trolleys within the station is longer than the way to your next train...
