Buying TLK Tickets in Warsaw at Midnight in Warszawa Centralna Train Station

Hi!

Me and my friends are planning to travel to Krakow from Berlin this Friday after work for the weekends. From the research I've done so far, the ticket shown at DB's machine suggests that the train from Berlin stops at Warsaw at 23:40 and will continue by bus to Krakow, Arriving at 3:00 in the morning -_-"

Knowing this i decided to find connections from Warsaw to Krakow by train, and information in the polish railway website pkp.pl has a TLK train leaving from 0:55, arriving at 6:00 am, we decided that that one is a way better option than having to arrive at 3 in the morning.

Now the problem is, I have been looking for information about how to obtain tickets from Warsaw to Krakow at midnight (we will arrive at 23:40), but hasn't yet stumbled into any certain/useful information.

Are there ticket machines that sell TLK tickets in Warzawa Centralna?
(i heard that ticket machines only sell tickets for 2 types of trains thats not TLK)

or, preferably

Are there ticket booths that runs until midnight in the station also?
(Wikitravel says we can get a 26% discount for travellers under 26 years old, if we buy it from a booth)

Also, Ive been digging here in the forums as well and i see that we can actually buy tickets inside the train from the ticket checkers, but will charge us with additional fees, and as we are students we prefer not to have to resort to that.

Why not just buy them online?

Unless it's suddenly changed, the ticket office is open at midnight.

How do you know that? I've paid via bank transfer before.

well, according to the link you gave me, the list of available payment channels doesent have an EC option to it, looks like a transfer via Deutsche Bank is possible on the list of online money transfers in Przelewy24 on the bottom, but that would be inconvinient as i do not use Deutsche Bank, also i have no time.

Unless it's suddenly changed, the ticket office is open at midnight.

I hope it doesent tho, the Euro 2012 is happening on at the date of my departure so they should be ready for a huge wave of visitors at any given time, Thanks for the info btw!
