  Talked to you earlier about my trip.  I've gotten the bus scheduals easily enough from autogari.ro, but I'm having a hard time trying to get the train scheduels from  http://www.infofer.ro/ (from www.cfr.ro) as it keeps giving me errors.  So I must be doing something wrong.  I could look at www.bahn.de, but didn't know if they would list all the trains or not.

  Anyways trying to find the following trains:

Bucureşti (Bucharest) - Braşov (Sat departure - think they should be the same train every Sat)
Braşov - Făgăraş (round trip for a daytrip) (Mon-Wed)
Braşov - Sighişoara (round trip for a daytrip) (Mon-Wed)
Braşov - Sinaia (round trip for a daytrip) (Mon-Wed)
Braşov - Bucureşti (On a Thursday)

  If you can figure out how to work that train website or know if bahn.de would have all the same exact details that would be great.  Just wanted to know the times etc compared to the buses from autogari.ro so I know what would be the best way.

Thanks again...

Strange, CFR website seems to work fine. There is a "English" button at top right on cfrcalatori.ro, maybe try entering timetable via English interface. Or if you right now trying English interface, then try Romanian
So I must be doing something wrong.  I could look bahn.de, but didn't know if they would list all the trains or not.
Usually yes, in majority of cases DB website is good enough source to check the timetable, so if you having trouble with CFR website, then just use bahn.de
Bucureşti (Bucharest) - Braşov (Sat departure - think they should be the same train every Sat)
Trains between Bucharest and Brasov are rather frequent, so it's not a problem to catch one any time of the day (same frequency on the way back)

Braşov - Făgăraş (round trip for a daytrip) (Mon-Wed)

Braşov - Sighişoara (round trip for a daytrip) (Mon-Wed)

Braşov - Sinaia (round trip for a daytrip) (Mon-Wed)


Once again as with Bucharest to Brasov, you an count on more or less same frequency of trains on the way back from Făgăraş, Sighişoara & Sinaia to Brasov (or just check bahn.de and see it yourself)

  Seems I wasn't getting the proper page using the English on the www.cfr.ro (then train schedual).  It has the same layout as the http://cfrcalatori.ro/ , but wouldn't work.  Your link did so perfect.

  Thanks again and now I can decide on if the buses or trains will be better with some of these trips...
