    What is a reserved seat?

    The word "reserved seat" for many is unfamiliar. The word "reserved seat" comes from the name of a particular type of train ticket - "placebo card." Let us consider in more detail what is a reserved seat.

    Initially there were only 2 types of cars:

    • reserved seat where specific locations were indicated;
    • unmarked, in which the passengers were accommodated at will.

    Thus, the special receipt attached to the travel ticket was called a place-map. It indicated the number of seats in the car, which was occupied by the passenger.

    Modern value reserved seat

    The modern value of the reserved seat is significantly different from the original. Today, the reserved seat is a type of passenger car, where division into a compartment is provided and there are special shelves to which you can lie down.

    The space of the second-class car is divided by special partitions into 9 compartments - compartments, each of which includes 6 places. Accordingly, any second-class carriage is designed for 81 passengers, i.e., there are 81 berths.
