    Quiet carriages are for those people who don't appear to like the world they live in, first class I sort of get but a hush hush journey for over sensitive people I don't.

    It's wierd as what do people.booking the quiet carriage think is happening in a normal carriage? A carnival? Most train journeys are quiet and respectable anyway.

    Although 1st class, quiet carriage or normal having a drink on a train is a must.

    I have heard it's a carriage where people like to do work and therefore don't like to be disturbed, if I had the money I would probably book first class if there was a substantial difference and have a nice scotch and soda instead of reading someone elses snotty free metro in an over noisy carriage.

    I book the quiet coach to get away from cunts who can’t survive without using a mobile phone every two minutes and shouting at the twat at the other end.

    I like Rory McGrath’s policy in a quiet coach.
    He goes up to anyone on a phone and starts singing “Jerusalem” as loud as he can next to them.

    Mrs Mist wants to know why it is cheaper to book a ticket from Manchester Airport to Scarborough than it is booking from Piccadilly to Scarborough. Oh in case you are wondering, the airport train stops at Piccadilly.

    I blame Mat.
