Quiet zones on trains head for buffers
A train operator is considering scrapping its quiet carriages.
South Western says quiet zones (where mobiles and headphones are banned) can be “a thorn in the side” of some passengers, but a “safe haven” for others.
It has decided to put the matter to bed by asking people for views in an online vote.
Some operators, including Cross Country, have already abolished quiet zones on some of their services.
