Upper and lower shelf in the car. A person can only have one ticket. At the same time, the inhabitants of the upper shelves look "deprived". They don't have a table or a comfortable place for their own things. It makes you want to go downstairs to your neighbor. But is it possible to do this officially, or is the passenger of the top shelf doomed, according to the rules, to spend the trip strictly in solitude and inconvenience?
Anyone who has traveled on a train and taken a ticket to the top shelf knows what a curse it is. Neither you sit, nor things are conveniently arranged, nor can you reach the table. In fact, you can only lie down and lie down. But is it really so? Is it really impossible to go down to the bottom shelf. In fact, there is a very specific answer to this question. The fact is that relations between passengers of different shelves are fully regulated by railway rules.
So, get down to the bottom shelf and use it to sit top bunk passenger has no right. The rules of Russian Railways, drawn up in accordance with the orders of the Ministry of Transport, clearly indicate that each passenger can use only the seat indicated on his ticket. Thus, if a person has a ticket for the lower shelf, then he should ride on it. And if on the top, then you can immediately forget about sitting on the bottom.

The same applies to places for luggage. They are distributed according to the priority rule. The passenger in the top bunk will only be forced to use the top seat, while the passenger in the bottom bunk will only be able to use the bags underneath. At the same time, the passenger from above cannot demand from the passenger below to free up part of the space for his belongings. Why such discrimination? In fact, this is not some kind of discrimination, but a contract. If a person buys tickets for the top shelf, he must take into account all these unpleasant moments.
Is it possible to somehow get out of the situation? There is only one way: ask the passenger below to temporarily use his seat. For example, in order to sit down and eat at the table. The latter, by the way, is common. However, the rules do not say anything about how to use it for the passenger on top (spoiler: no way). If the neighbor below does not want for some reason to allow you to sit in his place, then it is useless to demand anything. The law and rules of Russian Railways are completely on the side of the bottom. The best thing to do in this case is to go to the restaurant car or ask the conductor for help, the latter will try to find a place for you. Also, in some cases, you can try to exchange the top shelf for the bottom one, if there are empty seats. This can also be done with the help of the train staff.
