    I don't know how to word this, so in a basic summary........I'm travelling from the north east to London next week. I'll be returning with someone else that has already booked their tickets (I haven't yet) Ideally i'd like to sit with them so my question is.......

    Do long distance trains have unreserved seats on them? On the times I have travelled I have had a reserved seat and all the others in my carriages have been reserved :confused:. Can you add tickets to your journey if you have already paid? or maybe call the trainline and find out if there is any seats close?

    They have unreserved seats but the chances are there won't be many. Pointless phoning the trainline, they just sell tickets, they don't run the trains. Even if you phone the train company, the seat next to you is probably gone.

    Just get your friend to sit next to you, and ask the person next to you to swap with your friend, if that person even turns up.

    Just get to your train in plenty of time to get first dibs on the unreserved seats. There should be at least two carriages worth. Good luck!
