J.J.'s Advice / Avis de J.J.:
Well it really depends on which kind of train you're talking about. If it's a local commuter or regional train, then chances are you just go to the station, buy a ticket from a ticket machine or wicket, proceed to the right track (look for signs, or ask an employee), and then hop on board once the train comes. You might have to press a button to make the door open; it will be near the door, and will probably have a picture of a hand next to it, or written instructions. Once on-board, they will announce stops as you go, so just wait for them to announce your destination.

If it's a long-distance train, then to get the best fare you need to book online in advance. When you go to the station, it's a similar procedure of just making sure you're on the right platform at the right time, and then you walk on-board when the train stops. You'll have to show your ticket to an employee when he comes along collecting tickets.

Of course, the complexity of stations can vary widely. Small stations might just have a single platform, whereas major termini can have dozens of platforms with trains going all over the place. Many suburban station will have around 2-4 platforms, at least one for each direction.

Also, if you're travelling at a busy time, like rush hour, then that can make things more difficult as well.

Can't you imagine that the procedures might be different in different countries?
Y!A is accessible world wide. Please name you country for a sensible answer.

I my country I just need to get me a ticket before I get on the train, stamp and validate it before I enter the platform, step on the train when it arrives, and look for a free seat. In yours it might be completely different.
