Train question re: connection btw Salzburg to Venezia

Hello,

I bought my train tickets (for 3 adults) online via www.oebb.at from Salzburg Hbf → Venezia SL for 23 July 2014 and I have connection at Villach Hbf. This is my itinerary:

23 July 2014

• 08:12 Salzburg Hbf

• 10:43 Villach Hbf

• IC 592

--

• 10:50 Villach Hbf

• 14:05 Venezia SL

• IC 31

So... it shows that I will be arriving at Villach at 10:43 and then departing Villach at 10:50 to Venezia. That is 7 minutes until I get on my next connection to Venezia.

Does anyone know if this connection is using the same train? or do we have to get off the 1st train and get on the 2nd train? If so, is 7 minutes enough time to catch the 2nd train? and do we need to do any other special instructions for the connection?

This concerns me if the 2 trains are far away and we have to rush to catch our connection...

Any help would be appreciated.

Best,

Trung

You will just change platform and Villach train station is not huge. They would not sell connections you cannot make.

No problem at all as long as the incoming service is on time!

Has anyone done this connection lately? I'm so worried I'll lose the second train...
