  • Mostly blocked train windows |
    "This was the third trip during a 2 week vacation that I had booked through Rail Europe. Interestingly, the assigned seats for each of the trips were in the middle of the rail car with a mostly blocked window. It was the least favorable seat on the rail car. Why is that ? It happened for all 3 trips. Otherwise, each trip sent smoothly and I have no complaints. "

Even though task is easy, for new traveler its difficult. 2. Within TGV passenger is not knowing about stations as I can know in Metro. Kindly provide the complete list of all stations from - to location "
