Is there a service like skyscanner for trains?

I mean a comprehensive web service including all train companies' timetables so I'm sure I'm not ignoring any train connection.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Services that involve train are most likely to be region specific. Which country are you from? – Bibhas Jun 25 '12 at 9:18
The issue is that I need to know all trains for an international connection: Amsterdam - Strasbourg – Patrick Jun 25 '12 at 9:22
raileurope.co.uk doesn't help? – Bon Gart Jun 26 '12 at 2:37

Yes. Bahn.de (english page) offers timetables and a trip planner for European train travel.

The rail travel site Seat61 mentions a couple of quirks and suggestions regarding Bahn.de (under "How to check European train times"):

  • place names are not always anglicized
  • timetables are for major rail operators only
  • timetables change in June and December
  • it shows timetables only -- not fares (it shows and sells fares for trains operating within Germany)
