I’ve just interrogated the reservations list for the Padd-Penzance train I
worked part way this morning, and although there are actually no
reservations for the full Padd-Pz journey, there are quite a few
Pad/Reading-Plymouth, a number of Bristol-Truro, and some Bristol-St Erth.

Isn't this data skewed by the fact that people getting on at the origin
probably don't bother getting reservations?

After posting that I found I was only looking at half of the reservations!
Once I was looking at them all I found lots of shorter reserved legs
earlier in the journey, eg Paddington-Swindon, Reading-Bath etc.

Relevant to a recent Roland thread, I found a number of seats reserved for
three different legs but none for more than three. Presumably this reflects
the current need for compatibility with paper labels.
