Quiet coaches on trains are a lot better than they used to be. Mainly because they have now twigged that walkmans etc can be quiet if you use headphones. And why wouldn't you.
But there is still a big problem - other people and specifically, other people's children. They don't shut up.
There should be a simple rule for admission to the QC: If you make noise, you're out. This would include:
- talking to the person next to you
- talking on the phone
- talking quietly
- and so on
This would automatically exclude children, idiots and people who just yap, yap, yap. I'd also exclude people who rattle food wrappers too loudly.
It would be a nice place to make a train journey in.
