Generally, when choosing which train to take, opt for express trains - those with fewest stops, as you are unlikely to get far with regional ones - and you may get stuck in a station where almost no trains stop. It's very useful to memorize (or write down) the timetable, so that you instantly know which is the best train to take after you get kicked out of the previous one.
In central Europe (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Lithuania...) - you can use dance style tat is called short distant ticket trick. Conductor usually check only new passengers and he do not remember their final destination. So you buy ticket only for short distance and you show it to conductor. But after final destination on the ticket you continue journey, sit and sleep. This is not complete free, but cheap. More difficult dance style is similar. Blue dancer come and he check new passengers. You are new but you do not respond }sleep, look out of window, read a book).
== Searching for train connection and stops during journey ==
PeterOB tried to write some schedules for trains in Nordic countries, where trains does not go so often. But the schedule can change and some countries (Sweden) has difficult schedule. Important is to find stops during journey, where you can be kicked out.
Every country has their own web for searching connection (Buses, Trains, City public transport). The web pages for searching train connection are in Finland, in Sweden in Norway in Denmark, and in Czech-Slovakia (you are welcome to add more pages). But these web pages can be difficult and difficult can be even switching to English. It is possible to find stops during journey there, but it can be quite difficult.
There are some web pages, where you can find train connection, for example '''''' But there are not regional or commuter trains so good (if any in some regions). And you can not find stops during journey.
There is another page, where you can find all train connections include stops. It is Czech web for searching connections is Czech-Slovakia (all city transport, buses, trains, planes). But there is trains connection for whole Europe. The link for searching train connections is here '''''' But there is no English. '''It is possible to find stops during journey there''' But it is not possible to wind, if station has waiting room, or when waiting room wil be closed.
'''Translation for searching connection''' (''Vlaky'' = Trains ''Autobusy'' = Buses, ''MHD Vsechna'' = all city public transport, ''MHD'' = city public transport, ''Odkud'' = from, ''Kam'' = to, ''Datum a cas'' = date and time - two edit fields, ''Pouze přímá spojení'' = without train change during journey, ''Pouze vlaky bez povinné rezervace'' = only trains without seat reservation obligatory, but it usually does not show many trains, especially long-journey ones).
'''Errors during request for searching'''
''Zadání není jednoznačné, upřesněte prosím zadání'' - the station or city - town - wilage is not specified exactly (more stations with this name), write it more exactly.
''Objekt nebyl nalezen'' = this station or town or city or village is not in database
'''If you click for complete train, you get list of stops and schedule''' Translating: ''Stanice'' = station ''Příj'' = arrival ''Odj'' = departure ''Pozn'' = notes for this stop. (''zastavuje jen pro nastup'' = only for boarding, ''zastavuje jen pro vystup'' only for getting off, but it os only for ticket-reservation possibility, you can get in-off or be kicked out anywhere).
'''Buttons under connections''' ''Zmenit zadani'' = Change searching request ''Nove zadani'' = new searching request ''Trvaly odkaz'' =permanent link to connection, ''Hledat spatecni spojeni'' = searching for connection back, in another direction. And buttons down-left = ''Predchozi'' = three connections before, ''nasledujici'' = (three) connections after. At first request idos will find three earliest connections after selected date and time.
'''Translation for connections that has been found''' And then you find connection, some notes are - ''Příští stanice'' = Next Station, ''Vlak se prave nachazi ve stanici'' = Train is now in this station, ''povinná rezervace'' = seat reservation obligatory, ''moznost rezervace'' = seat reservation is possible, ''jede'' = train goes at this dates, ''jede do'' = train goes until this date, ''jede od'' train goes since this date, ''od'' = since ''do'' = until, ''globální cena'' = global ticket price, not interesting for us, ''vozy 1. a 2. třídy'' = wagons with first and second class, ''pouze vozy 2. třídy'' = wagons only with second class.
And there are some symbols, what is in train - like beds, restaurant, bar or bistro, car transporting etc.
'''Error 1'''
''Spojení nebylo nalezeno'' = Connection was not found
''Možné příčiny'' = It can be caused by
''spojení v příslušném časovém období neexistuje'' = no connection exist in this time
'' mezi výchozím a cílovým objektem neexistuje přímé spojení'' = there can be not direct connection (without changes), if you have choosen direct connection
'' spojení nelze realizovat povolenými dopravními prostředky'' = connection is not possible with selected type of vehicles due to our database status (if you have selected only trains, buses etc.)
This application usually marks most of regional-commuter trains like '''blue R''' some commuter trains are missing (commuter trains by Stockholm, P train in Helsinki), and it marks '''green''' all '''IC''', '''EC''' or '''fast trains''' with seat reservation obligatory. it shows seat reservation obligatory in all IC-EC trains. Only few international dance floors are '''red''' like '''EN''' and '''INT'''
The semi-regional trains for longer journey are usually marked like blue too, but the letters are various (for example in Sweden OTU - Oresundstaag, in Norway REG trains are regional, not local trains). The long journey trains are usually green with letters EC, IC or specific letters (TGV in France, X2 is SJ Snabbstaag in Sweden, S2 is Pendolino in Finland, Green AE or red INT is Allegro train between Helsinki and St. Pettersburk, FR or FA is high-speed train in Italy - Treno Alta Velocita, FB is something like IC train in Italy). Some Night trains are marked ICN (green) and some night Trains like green NZ (Moscow-Helsinki), some night trains are red EN - Euronight. Many night trains (in Finland, in Sweden are marked like green IC or even blue REG in Norway)
But some Long Journey IC trains are still blue like regional (ICs in Norway are marked like blue REG, long journey dance floors from Stockholm to Narvik or (Goteborg) Stockholm-Lulea or Lulea-Narvik are marked sometimes like blue R Arcitic circle train)
Sometimes - one trains is marked like two another trains (R train Helsinki-Tampere, trains between Oslo and Goteborg), and some trains has two symbols (for example train between Helsinki and St. Peterburg is red INT or Green AE ). Even some high speed trains can be missing there (probably purple Treno Italio - AV dance floor in Italy).
The most important for this Czech database is '''that you can find stops during journey''' Unfortunately - you can not find in this Czech application, which stations has waiting room, or when waiting room is closed.
'''''' is only for trains, it is part of , where you can find all buses and trains in Czech Republic and Slovakia. You can find all stops, time table and length of journey between stations in km. Unfortunately - this page is not in English.
This application is created by '''CHAPS''' and there is possible to download database of schedules and trips from '''''' like complete database, only trains (in Europe) or only buses (Czech and Slovakia) or city public transport for selected city in Czech-Slovakia. And there should be database of planes too. Unfortunately, English is missing.
