Senior confusion about train travel in England

Jump to last reply

After touring Devon and Cornwall in June, my husband and I plan to return our rental car in Penzance and travel back to London by train, (on a Sunday morning) to visit family. I have checked GWR for the train times etc, and find I can book the least expensive (that's a joke) tickets twelve weeks in advance. However, I see they ask all sorts of questions regarding - type of seat, which way it will face, airline or facing etc. etc. Has anyone traveled this route before and have recommendations for two confused seniors? I must get it right as there are no refunds once purchased. I'm also hoping we can book a window seat in the restaurant car (if they have one of course) to enjoy lunch and wine whilst watching the beautiful Countryside go by. But, can we do this in advance or just when we alight? And, is there somewhere we can safely store our luggage while we are dining?
Enlightenment will sincerely be appreciated.
