After our bus tour ends in Madrid we are departing hopefully by train to Belgium. However I cant seem to find a schedule for this? I know we must travel through France, but not sure which city we will have to transfer at? Or which Train is best suited? Your help is much appreciated, thank you
The fastest train trip is 15+ hours. Why not fly?
Go to www.bahn.com to get train routes. Fastest is to Hendaye then to Paris with a station transfer via Metro, then to Brussels.
Its best to look up train schedules either on www.raileurope.com or on the Deutsches Bahn website. Here's the link:

Sometimes they will not show you the entire schedule if you are transferring a lot by train. I would also consider looking into flying. It might be a lot cheaper and it will definitely be quicker. Look at www.skyscanner.com for budget European flight options. I would look up the schedule but I'm not sure where you are going to in Belgium and when.
Great advise Sam! I didnt realize how long the trip would take. We are now going to book a flight, Thank you
