Front or back?

I usually sit in the back carriage of this train. Usually the same seat. The perk of a moderately long commute - one can choose where to sit.

At the last station before London Marylebone, Gerrards Cross, few people who get on at the back get a seat.

Today, I need to make a quick get-away when I get to London. I have chosen to sit in the front carriage.

We have stopped at the last stop before Marylebone and there are still quite a few seats available.

They will be like cattle at the back.

The usual doctrine is that passengers heading for a terminus will tend to bunch towards the front of a train

Clearly the clever folk of Buckinghamshire are far to clever for that. Shhhh. Don't tell them, there may be a rush!
