The secrets of my success...for future reference...
Put your bag on the seat next to the window, and sit on the aisle seat...that way they have to ask you to move across.
Always, headphones and book. Be absorbed, oblivious to your surroundings, and NEVER make eye contact. That 'cut off' and they're not only going to have to ask you to move across, but they also first are going to have to get your attention...and you can get away with pretending not to hear them the first couple of times...most will give up, rather than shout.
Piece de resistence...take off your boots, and get comfy, just like you would in an armchair at home, curl with you legs under you. The conductor only minds if you put your feet on the seat shoes on, take them off, no complaint...and no one will want to sit next to you, because you may have sweaty smelly feet. But most won't want to disturb you, because it you look too settled, and we Brits, don't like to create that much fuss.
Never, ever fails. Trust me.
