Venezia / Venice / Venedig to Trieste by train

Despite the distance between Venice/Venezia and Trieste, the only direct train sevices which connect the historical heart of Venice with its fellow city on The Adriatic are the Regionale Veloce (RV) trains.
Express trains, on which seats can be reserved, aren't available when travelling from Venezia S. Lucia station.

That's because the relatively small number of express trains which head to Trieste from other Italian cities would have to divert off their direct routes to call at S. Lucia station, so they only call at Venezia Mestre station on the mainland.
