Of the Train.
"The rail industry has set out how it will cope with ever-increasing demand by using technology and advanced design to get more people on trains and more trains on the network.
"... The Rail Delivery Group, which represents train operators and Network Rail, said new seat designs would both improve comfort and increase the amount of space for passengers on both new and existing trains.
"One new seat type allows between 20-30% more seats, allowing passengers to sit in a more upright position, while another type provides traditional seats during the day, but converts to a different configuration during peak times, allowing up to 15-20% more seats and more room for people who stand."
