Would appreciate feedback! I was able to book train tickets in January for a day trip from Madrid to Toledo on June 1. A friend is now joining us but has been unable to buy tickets on Renfe or Trainline. We thought tickets would become available again 60 days prior, on April 1, but everyday we check, we get this message on the site: "The requested train is not available at the moment. We apologise for any inconvenience. Please try again later."
We've signed up for travel alerts on www.raileurope.com to be notified when tickets become available. However, I'm thinking of purchasing tickets on May 31 now in case the June 1 tickets are never made available. Are some routes taken out of commission sometimes, maybe for train work? We get the same "unavailable" message for trains June 1 - 10 Madrid to Toledo. However tickets for other routes out of Madrid in June are available. Any ideas or feedback would be appreciated.
