Loco2 doesn't require an account to search, and is happy to let you search for Brussels with the English spelling! IIRC Loco2 covers more European train operators than Captain Train (formerly CapitaineTrain), but Captain Train lets you do a few more advanced things such as loyalty cards. Oh, and Loco2 bills you in GBP, Captain Train in EUR
