The seats at the end of the car aren't any less desirable than the ones in the middle IMO. Where DID you hear that stuff, Pal?

on a recent thread- about not being as much room to put small bags under seats or something.

I once tried to buy tickets for a train leaving Rome for Florence a few hours later, at the station at FCO. 2nd class was sold out. I bought first, but the point is that it happens.

Yes it happens - one should buy their outward ticket from Florence when arriving in Florence to be sure even though first class may rarely sell out - there would always be regional trains Florence to Rome that would or could not sell out since those tickets are valid on any regional train during validity period - does not mean you'd get a seat but can board. I've taken regional trains on that route and even though they take about twice as long I enjoyed trains taking the old non-high-speed route and stopping a lot at sleepy stations and going thru towns whereas high-speed trains usually skirt all towns en route and do not stop. And they are dirt cheap - just a handful of euros - I had a Eurailpass and at that time would have had to pay 15 euros surcharge/seat reservation fee and go to a ticket window and buy it - I just decided to hop the regional train instead. So if trains are sold out regional trains are usually an option.
