Can I switch of train ?

Imagine that i'm to Paris after 19:00 then at 20:00 i'm at Paris, and i wan to travel to Zurich and i have to switch my train... Can I do this?

when using the rule you can NOT do it like this (TWO travel days):
Paris dep. 1930h
Lyon Arr. 2200h
Lyon dep. night train to Marseilles 2300h
Marseilles arr. 0800h

but you can do it like this (ONE travel day):
Paris dep. 2000h (with night train)
Marseilles arr. 0400h (in the morning)
Marseilles dep 1100h
Barcelona arr. 2000h

👉 you see... it has to be a direct night train - you can not change before if you want to us only ONE of you travel days.

if the case is like this:
travelling during the day from Bordeaux (dep. 1400h) to Paris (arr. 2000h)
then using the night train from Paris (2100h) to
Zurich (arr. 0800h)

then you have to use TWO travel days and it doesn't matter when you arrive/depart in Paris ... as you can travel the FULL day of the 22-04 and the 23-04 (TWO days).
