I am trying to book a seat reservation for Brussels to London.  The screen comes up that there is a change of train, but there is not.  It shows Bruxelles-Midi (Belgium), the the same words again with 35 minutes between them.  Can someone explain why?  I just want the one train from the second Bruxelles-Midi listing.  I can’t figure out what the additional 35 minutes is for and why it shows up.  I’m afraid to book this train without knowing the meaning of it.

They're somehow factoring in the check-in (closes 30 minutes before departure) and 5 minutes minimum connection time from other trains. So they're really only showing 1 train. You can book it.


Thanks so much!  It showed a connection, so it worried me.  Thank you!
