It is TravelChinaGuide, not China Guide. That is to say you should buy the ticket youself. Generally speaking, you can not get a ticket to tibet without showing the permit. If you can buy the ticket, you can get to get on the train, as I know the staff on the train will not check the permit. After arriving at Tibet, you can apply for one in Lhasa if it is needed. Someone tried this before. That is an adventure, anyway. Good Luck~
