Pros: I got the window seat. Cons: Bring back the viewing/lounge car. It's the best part of the train! Watching the landscape change around you is such a beautiful experience I would hate to see future generations have taken away! Tips: Just be cool man and if you don't hit it off with your allocated travel partner then either ask to move or communicate your needs/want to be left alone.
