I'll be trying to get on this in mid July from La tour de Carol. When I get to Villefranche-de-confient it appears I can go from there to at least Perpignan but Mike Ball in his 2020-21 atlas shows the line as "expected to re-open". Has it?

Yes I'm aware of the schedule (I asked Little Trains operator) but my query is if I can get to EG Perpignan from Villefranche-de-confient preferably by rail. I assume there's a bus? I don't want to be stuck at Villefranche-de-confient.

I see trains between Villefranche-Vernet-les-bains (10 min walk from Confient) to Perpignan at www.sncf.com but only a few per day on normal (e,g, not striking) days.

OK thanks I'll try that suggestion of Villefranche-Vernet-les-bains as a departure point.

Everytime I put Figueres (Spain) as a destination they want to only give me TGV options to Figueres-Vilafant. I want Figueres with a view to getting from there to L'Escala not the 60+ euro price for a 24 minute ride from Perpignan. Does anyone know if I can avoid the TGV line?

Try Perpignan - Port Bou at SNCF and Port Bou -Figueres at RENFE separately.

Thanks both of you. I'll look at your suggestions tomorrow as it's late night in AU.
