Quiet zones on trains head for buf­fers

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

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.
