Question Anyone know how to convert a pdf table into a table in Word or HTML?

I'm trying to convert Internet train timetables into a form which will work with iSilo. A lot of UK online timetables are in pdf format, which is a real pain.

I try selecting the text and copying it into Word or Excel, but no joy, it gets completely garbled.

Anyone know of an alternative. I thought about saving it as an image and then running a sophisticated OCR against it, like Textbridge Pro, but I suspect that's an expensive program and I'm not sure it would work anyway
