ollantaytambo to MP and MP to cusco train question

Hello. I'm thinking of taking the train from Ollantaytambo to MP and then two days later taking the train from MP to Cusco. I've read it's ok to book the train tickets when I get to Peru, or even the train station. Do you think I'll have trouble getting them? Where can I find the train schedules? Thanks!

The web page is : orient-express.com/web/tper/tper_a2a_home.jsp

You can buy yr tickets through the web page (which I recommend) as the trains seem to be very full these days.

The only way to get to MP is by train and if you come all the way to Cusco and are unable to get a ticket you will regret it a lot.

Better be safe than sorry.

I just booked the same route for May 2006 and had a very difficult time securing a reservation. I finally was able to get what I wanted through emailing Peru Rail as the website did not accurately display the availability.
