The funny thing is she laughed at myself , before she spoke and the reason was there was another 'Seat Hogger' on a three-seater, which when I asked to sit down, not only moved from middle to right to right, moved right out of the seat and walked away. This was just leaving Parramatta train station! It was just so funny the way she left as if my sitting in the middle of the seat caused her move away!
I have blogged before about Seat Hoggers and they are around!
Anyway back to Reika, she advised firstly she would like to have more quiet carriages and secondly has experienced train carriages not being quite one morning when 3 young people were
constantly talking from Mount Druitt until they got off at Parramatta. This happened last week on the 5.45 am train, which was based on the old time tables, when they got off the train she was 'relieved big time!'
Reika would like Sydney Trains and the NSW Police to provide on-the-spot harsh penalties of $20.00 each for each commuter. On a lighter note, light penalties could be silver coin donations to a charity- well we both laugh on this one!
What do you think should be done to make Quieter trains carriages quieter?

Editors Notes 2/11/13: due to one of the below comments being received, I would like to thank the community member that advised and has corrected myself that the Quite Carriages are for NSW Train Link Customers not Sydney Trains.
In saying that I have caught 2 Quiet trains so far on NSW Train Link services. I now would like to see if we do get Quiet carriages on with Sydney Trains.
