Hi all, I'm confused about the seating in the Paris to Bayeux train; I'm booking the early train from Paris to meet a Normandy tour at 930 on 9-26. When you enter 2nd class (sncf site) it has an icon to select seats but then doesn't really have you select them except for a "next to" option (which I understand from other posts means next to someone who has already made a reservation). As you move forward, it then assigns us to Coach 10, seat 18 aisle and seat 12 window. Could these be next to each other?
I saw on another forum someone who had same assignments which make me wonder if all the seat assignments say this and it really is just open seating? The return trip lists the exact same seats.
I'm willing to pay the extra 20e to assure seats together (when you pick 1st class, it states coach 4, seats 14A & 16W).
If you have any insight into this, I'd appreciate it!
