From Wednesday 14 October 2009, French trains running on the new winter timetable will go on sale. The timetable change from summer to winter schedules takes place on Sunday 13 December 2009.

Normally, French trains can be booked a maximum of 3 months in advance of the date of travel, but the change over to the winter timetable means that the booking horizons change slightly for a couple of months.

From 5am UK time on 14 October 2009, passengers will be able to book rail travel in France for dates between 13 December 2009 and 13 January 2010 inclusive.

The 3 month rule applies again from 15 October, until 5 November 2009, when sales open for trains running between 5 February and 8 March 2010 inclusive.

For any trains running after 8 March 2010, the usual 3 month booking horizon will apply, so anyone wanting to book a train on 9 March will need to wait until 9 December 2009.

The winter timetable features increased services on routes popular with skiers, such as the Paris to Bourg St Maurice overnight service, which runs every night throughout the winter ski season.
