Hi

Living in Rugby, I travel on Pendolinos quite often and I always head for coach A (northern end, standard class) because it is almost always the emptiest area of the train. I usually find that Coach B is the standard class quiet coach -- this is probably one of the reasons for Coach A's emptiness. Yesterday I found myself travelling to East Croydon and back to watch a football match, via Watford Junction. On the way there the train was in 'reverse operation' so having run to the back end of the train i found myself at the other end of first class to where i needed to be. I rushed back up to Coach A which was empty, despite my belief that the closest coach to the end of the platforms at Euston would logically be the most full. On the way back from Watford I found that Class A was quite coach, and not Coach B.

Are the quiet coach classifications on Pendolinos interchangeable or are they changing it across the fleet or what?

Pendo's have a designated quiet coach in FC?

What do you call the FC coach next to SC, which often has literally no people in all the way between Euston & Brum- Quiet coach no 2? ;)

Whilst SC is overcrowded, full of people and luggage, I'm in FC oblivious to the fact there's people actually stood up on this train, enjoying my full english breakfast, with a cup of coffe.
