We had the best day at Macchu Picchu and we finished the day with a wonderful trainride. Maritza, Cesar and Miguel gave us the journey of a lifetime with drinks, peruvian brownies and a fashion show. Muchas gracias!
This is where we hop onto the train to Machu Picchu, fairly easy to go around. There are small snacks bars inside that are clean, bathroom. Also local sellers for hats, souvenirs, before entering the station, there are a full street long of local vendors...More
As an alternative to the Poroy or Ollantaytambo starting points for the train to Machu Picchu you might like to consider this more expensive but highly enjoyable option. The fairly new "Sacred Valley" train runs between Urubamba and MP at a leisurely time of 10.30...More

It is very hit or miss... We sat in a train car that was more than half empty and the workers told everyone to sit on the right side for best pictures and videos of the scenery. FYI sit on the side farthest away from the station when you get on for best views of scenery!!
If this is the case and it is a packed train car it would generally just mean asking other guests on the train. Every time I do it on airplanes nobody has minded. Especially if you tell them it's your honeymoon! We got engaged at Machu Picchu and the locals loved hearing about it! If worst comes to worst just let the train workers know you need to sit beside your husband for medical reasons and they will make it happen for you :p :)
But when we went the train wasn't totally full we boarded at Ollantaytambo though not right from Cusco.
