Since some of the trains are very long and the conductors sometimes need to have to open up the compartments you might still end up transporting your bike in a different way.

Eurostar

see https://www.eurostar.com/rw-en/travel-info/travel-planning/luggage/bikes you need to make a reservation for your bikes with Eurodispatch and then bring your bikes to the luggage counter and pick them up at the other end of your connection. E.g. going from Brussels to London you bring your bikes to the counter at Brussels Midi (see pictures) below and pick them up at London St. Pancras International.
