Riding side saddle.

There are one or two variations in carriage layout on the First Capital Connect trains. One anomaly in these layouts is the occasional row of 3 seats facing sideways.

Three flippin' seats in a row.

Obviously, human nature being what it is, people go for the end ones first in the hope they’ll have a free seat beside them for the journey. This is exactly my situation this morning.

However, today of all days, I’ve bought a coffee and there’s nowhere to put it but on the ground. There’s a panel to my left that looks as though it would fold out to form a perfect shelf for the job but it looks like you need a National Rail issue tool to unlock it. Foiled.

Coulda shoulda woulda.
