Seating plan

Most Grand Central services are run as sets of five-car Class 180 "Adelante" trains, with some being run in 10-car formation. The seating plan for our trains is available below, letting you find your seat or check where you can store your luggage before you travel. Alternatively, you can download our seating plan here (PDF).

If you buy an Advance ticket, you will have a mandatory seat reservation, however off-peak and anytime tickets may not come with these. In these cases, we advise customers to consult our seat availability charts in order to ensure a comfortable journey.
