Ok , to put it simply , I'm impressed by this website . It has everything on it. Simply everything . I was shocked to even find out some info on Microsoft train simulator troubleshooting for Indian railway mods :O.
Now this question may sound a bit absurd . But I can be absurd at times.
If I travel by train , I spend 85 % of the time looking out of the window . I have always tried to predict if the seat number is on the " opposite track" side or
on the "greenery side" . My predictions are usually not so precise. I know that there is a seat layout for each coach . But do the sides change ? For instance do the side berth windows always face one particular direction or are the coaches attached in reverse sometimes ? How do you passionate rail fanners choose your seats ? Can I get a direction chart for a coach or something ?
This is just a casual question . So , If I am asking the impossible or if this annoys you , then I suggest you leave it and proceed to more important stuff .

AFAIK, there is no particular order / fashion / direction to attach a coach.... I guess they are randomly attached....
And please dont be so formal... We have seen completely useless questions being asked and being happily replied by enthusiastic members of IRI... :)

Sir, how do you manage to do it ? Do know for sure that the side berths or the inner berths face the tracks or is it just intuitive prediction ?

i guess it is more of luck rather than any intuitive prediction. normally coaches are arranged in any random manner as deemed fit by the employees. These aesthetics are of no interest to railways.

Nope, no such facility available till now..but I guess at PRS you can request for a particular coach number, subject to the availability of seats.....
PS: I am not very sure about that also...
