The only way to buy train ticket from Aleppo to damascus to call in person at the train station a day before you travel,or on the day of travelling,and need to present you passport at the ticket office.I believe there is always seats available,cos mostly used by tourist.

Hello,

Can someone advise how to get the train timetables Aleppo-Damascus and Aleppo-Lattakia-Aleppo?

There are some published on http://www.seat61.com/Syria.htm but are they accurate? I tried following the instructions for accessing the cfssyria website but they don't work for me.

If someone can confirm that seat61 is accurate or list the times, that would be very helpful!
