A note about unreserved tickets: Unreserved tickets show the origin and destination of travel but do not promise a seat on any specific train.
The best assurance for optaining a seat is to reserve on the specific trains you will be using. There is no cost to reserving ahead.
The advance payment reservation will lock your reservation until departure time.
In the rare instance that your reserved accomodation is "oversold" or if the coach is "shopped", the conductor will provide the refund form for the accomodation.
