Hi guys, there is a train line R3 from France to Spain: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R3_(Rodalies_de_Catalunya)

I would love to use that train to go from Paris with the night train to Latour-de-Carol-Enveitg and from there to Barcelona.

Google finds the R3 train, but neither the interrail.eu nor the RENFE websites finds the train.

Do you have an idea where I can reserve a seat?

It’s a Rodalies train - you can’t reserve seats and - according to the Reddit page I ended up on when Googling - you just show your pass on board.

If that day you are only doing that Latour to Barcelona trip, you may however want to just pay the relatively cheap fare and preserve one of your pass’s travel days.

RENFE don’t bother loading the “commuter” lines to the timetable databases so these trains do not show up in most planners.

 

Here is the current timetable https://rodalies.gencat.cat/web/.content/02_Horaris/horaris/R3.pdf

 

If using a pass you will have to manually enter the journey.

Just as a note, on arrival in Barcelona you will probably encounter access gates. Approach a member of staff and show them your pass, or contact them through the intercom. 

 

I did this trip on an interrail pass last summer in opposite direction. Using Interrail was no problem at all, even though it indeed does not appear in the app.
