It sounds like MOB was covering itself against overrunning of the major work and /or there is a technical difficulty with creating seat reservations when they are not sure when the service will restart.
As I've said many times on this forum, it doesn't matter a huge amount if you don't get a panoramic train, the view is just as good from a normal train window. An you don't really need to book on the MOB either, especially of you can get to the terminus early and be first on the train.
