Re: access for wheelchair
Well, I can tell you that with a powered wheelchair not all trains will be accessible, and on those trains that are, not all parts of the train will be accessible. Building trains in such a way that a wheelchair can circulate freely through the whole train is just not practical.
I would suggest you contact the railways to help you. The can give you assistance. You will have to tell them how big and heavy your wheelchair is.
The Saarbrücken - Paris part is easiest, as there you have direct trains. You can call the German Railways' service hotline at +49 180 5 99 66 33 and they will make sure someone helps you on the train in Saarbrücken, and of it in Paris. See also:
From Brussel to Saarbrücken is a bit more complicated. The normal route is train to Luxemburg, and bus from there. But your wheelchair will be a problem. However you could go via Paris. Brussel - Paris is 1h25m, and Paris - Saarbrücken is 1h50m. You need to transfer from Paris Nord to Paris Est. Best call the Belgian railways for that at: +32 70 79 79 79. They will normally be able to organize assistance for your trip starting in Brussel.
