I managed to book my train ticket for the Cáceres - Madrid trip on the
30th with a Talgo.

I booked mine for 12.40€, which is great.

What's not that great is that I couldn't book the ticket for the
Madrid - Cáceres trip on the 22nd.
I was aiming for the TRENHOTEL 00332 leaving at 22:25 from Madrid, but
after selecting the web fare (15.40 €) and pressing comprar (after
entering the captcha) the page had this error:

 Error en plaza 1 = Error al obtener precios de plaza (G001-V510)

and there was no price listed for the ticket. I got the same error if
selecting the Estrella fare.

Any idea if this means that there aren't such tickets available
anymore, or there aren't yet?
