Looking for departures from Bruges to Lille (We want to take the 1:00 TGV from Lille-Flandres to Paris). When I go to the DB site to look, there is only 1 direct train(thru Kortrijk) Bruges/Lille(11:34-12:52). All the others go through Brussels and are close to 3 hrs. Same on the SNCF site.
When on the Belgian Railways site (http://www.b-rail.be/main/E/) when I choose "Travel in Europe" as my timetable option, I get the same result. However, if I pick "Travel in Belgium" I get hourly departures that take 1:20 with a change in Courtrai. The trains are IC810 and IC19718 so I assume the IC is inter-city.
Am I missing something, or are these okay options? We aren't buying the Bruges/Lille leg until we get to Bruges, but I want to buy the Lille/Paris ticket now with a PREM. I just don't want a nasty surprise when we arrive in Bruges and try to buy the 9:34-10:55 Bruges/Lille ticket. Thanks!
