Regarding the train system-
I understand there are two trains, just now beginning to research so I forgot the names/ differences, sorry, but my question is about when to purchase the tickets.
Looked up the train schedule today, but balked when I saw the tickets were non refundable.
I don't know the exact time (of day) I want to leave each city, it will all depend on how much I am enjoying myself, whether I might want to dilly-dally or get moving on quickly!
Do the preferable seats get sold out? I must have a window seat facing the direction we are going.
I can go ahead and plan to check out of the hotel and be at the train depot by about one o'clock, I think that would be realistic, but what if I wanted to rather depart at two or three?
So, I only want to pre purchase if there are reasons or consequences for comfort and choice.
