Overnight train Madrid to Lisbon

Looking to buy train tickets on the overnight trail from Madrid to Lisbon for a trip in November. There are a few on line sellers -- rail Europe, acp rail, and enrail. Any suggestions on which I should use? Or should I simply wait until I get to Madrid to order tickets?

Thanks!

I'd definetly buy them before you leave home, as night trains can fill up. Try buying them through RENFE, the Spanish Rail Network - www.renfe.com. They don't accept U.S. credit cards, but you can pay with PayPal. Otherwise it's easier but more expensive to buy through an American agency like Rail Europe or ACP. I haven't heard of enrail.

I researched taking this train last year and some have commented that the Madrid to Lisbon overnight train may be cancelled at some point. Just keep that possibility in mind.
