But the sleeper train is cool!
I'd like to travel the route in the day to see the scenery although I am not sure that the day time trains mentioned take the same route as the Elipsos does.
Paris Gare de Lyon dep - 07:15
Figueres Vilafant arr - 12:41
Figueres Vilafant dep - 13:03
Barcelona Sants arr - 14:46
Barcelona Sants dep - 15:00
Madrid Atocha arr - 17:45
One more change, but Figueres Vilafant is cross platform and the journey is 4 hours quicker.
out of interest do they still change the wheels to broad gauge on the border?
years ago I travelled this way & the boggies were changed while we were on board
Having travelled on the Elipsos train recently I had a sleeper berth and whilst the meals and drinks in the restaurant were good I was not so impressed with the actual ride quality.
