train tickets in Europe
if you want to find cheap train tickets it's best you travel to Europe during the off-season...May, September, are all good months to go to Europe and find cheap tickets. Also, iIt's likely to be cheaper to buy point-to-point tickets there than in advance unless you are traveling long distances daily.
dont use RailEurope
you can get big discounts on train tickets if you buy in advance online directly from each countries rail company. I find that RailEurope and similar resellers dont offer cheap rates even when you travel during the low season.
buying Rail Europe tickets
I normally buy tickets with Rail Europe or EuroStar though I find prices can be cheaper when buying through Rail Europe. However, Rail Europe does not always portray the cheapest fares they actually sell, which is why you want to do a manual check. When buying tickets through Rail Europe over the phone remember that they charges 10% extra for phone orders.
Cheap train tickets
I too book my train tickets through Rail Europe..the main reason i do is because you can book tickets 9 months in advance. Wherever you do, don't buy tickets right at the station if you want to save money. It's easier to wait last minute but buying in advance means cheaper tickets always. Also, look out for Rail Europe's special discounts on train tickets before the summer.
