Hello, everyone. I am trying to make a reservation train from Paris Gare De Lyon station to Barcelona-Sants with a Eurail pass 1st class tickets at 7/23 and the Departure time is 10:10(TGV 9713). But I cannot make a reservation because a delivery post could not arrive before I get on the train. 

I try to call SCNF (00 33 1 84 94 3635), reply that they couldn’t answer the call.

Is there any way to make a reservation for this train?

Yes, call SNCF-but likely another nr. Listed on the long page by seewulf on howtodoit via other means.

In short; do NOT use via app/Eurail-it will only lead to probs

Also do note that the very few through trains-taking still some 6 hrs-have only small quota for passholders, very expensive surcharge and are still often booked weeks ahead in main his-eason due to demand. There are various ways-also posted here many times-on howtodoit with more changes and for less money-and more time. But maybe 1st cl beeznez people do not like that.

Try to call again. You must have an American Express Card to pay with.

The best way to make reservations for French trains is to call SNCF. No need of Pass Cover Number.
