I can do a German address probably, and am going to Germany on Tuesday
afternoon anyway, so will see if there's any saving to be made (probably
while booking in person at a station).

I will attempt to get on the same trains.  It also points at the
possibility of a decent price being available for my outbound leg (which
I've not yet booked either).
