We then headed to the Banja Luka station hoping that our understanding that there would be a train to Sarajevo at 1.15 was correct (but in the knowledge that the bus station was next to the train station, and there was supposed to be a bus at 2.30). As it happened, though, a train was due at 1.15, so after a fairly tedious non-computerised booking process, we were duly issued with our tickets. The clerk mentioned that, if there was room, we could sit in 1st class. On closer examination, it appears that she had decided that we ought to travel (and pay for) 1st class, which was probably a good idea but it might have been nice to have been consulted!
