I would like to Lhasa by train, is it possible for a foreigner to purchase a ticket in Beijing? Or, do I have to take part in a tour since I heard that no foreigner is allowed to enter into Tibet alone.

you need a permit at first, Mr. Hanson. To apply for the permision to travel in Tibet, you should take copies of your visa and the main page of your passport, as well as your career certification. I have heard that diplomats and journalists are not allowed to Tibet. Not sure about this. You will be rejected to get in the train and plane to Tibet.
