Thanks to Peach, screencaps from CBS:


Leo and Jamal are waiting for this train:
D 407 from Warsaw Central to Vienna Westbahnhof, 20/2054-21/0632
And the latest they need to leave Gdansk to catch this is:
TLK 51116 from Gdansk to Warsaw Central, 20/1448-2006

It is possible to get off the train on the Czech/Austrian border at Hohenau to shave 15min off and arrive at a more central station, closer to the Palais Augarten:
TLK 51116 from Gdansk to Warsaw Central, 20/1448-2006
D 407 from Warsaw Central to Hohenau, 2054-21/0501
R 2307 from Hohenau to Vienna Praterstern, 0509-0613

Beating Leo/Jamal's train requires a departure from Gdansk at 5.50am (9 hours earlier!), but goes through Berlin and Munich and arrives only at 5.45am, less than an hour before Leo/Jamal's arrival. Miss Leo/Jamal's train, however, and you're looking at an arrival in Vienna at 6.24pm, a full 12 hours late. Not surprising if we get a full bunching.

Thanks to the episode we can figure out the trains they took. The first five teams went on:
 TLK57102  Gdańsk Główny -> Warszawa Centralna     10:15 - 16:44
 TLK407    Warszawa Centralna -> Wien Westbahnhof  20:54 - 06:32+1

The last two teams took
 TLK51116  Gdańsk Główny -> Warszawa Centralna     14:48 - 20:06
And in Warsaw they met up with the first teams.

Neobie:
All the teams actually got off one stop early, at Vienna Meidling. The train was scheduled to arrive at 6.19am.

We saw Nicky/Kim trying for this in the spoilers, but I guess that flight was full...
QR 96 from Vienna to Doha, 22/1555-2215
QR 120 from Doha to Abu Dhabi, 23/0235-0435

Leo/Jamal dodged a massive bullet! Here's the flight Travelocity offered:
AB 8137 from Vienna to Dusseldorf, 22/1915-2045 (actual 2040-2212)
AB 7460 from Dusseldorf to Abu Dhabi, 22/2130-23/0550
The first flight got delayed which would have left them stuck in Dusseldorf overnight.
The next best flight would have got them into Abu Dhabi at 7.05pm!
It was a non-elimination leg; what would the producers have done with a team 13 hours behind?

They smartly booked an earlier flight on a different airline to Dusseldorf:
VO 155 from Vienna to Dusseldorf, 22/1735-1910
AB 7460 from Dusseldorf to Abu Dhabi, 22/2130-23/0550

The other teams took these flights:
AB 8359 from Vienna to Berlin, 22/1505-1620
AB 7494 from Berlin to Abu Dhabi, 22/2250-23/0600
