Groups – even small ones – can get quite talkative at times. But there may be occasions when groups of seats are only available together in the Quiet Coach (usually coach B in Standard). We’ll do our best to book you into other coaches - unless the Quiet Coach is specified – but this may not always be possible on your chosen train(s). So if you do find you’re booked into the Quiet Coach, please respect the rules and be considerate of our other passengers.
