Eurail passes are bought for a specific length of time, like one month, and a specific number of Eurail travel days therein, like three days in one month. Eurail does not sell point-to-point European train tickets (single trip tickets between two destinations).
Though folks (like us) tend to call European trains "Eurail," there's actually no such animal as a Eurail train: any trains within the Eurail umbrella are being run by one of the railway companies in the many countries which affiliate with Eurail.
