extra train anyone?

What about adding another train?  Did any think about that?  Two trains, twice as much space.  1 + 1 = 2 last I checked.

Ah, the civilized world, a train full of company men – and women – scuttling to ‘work.’  Right.  All worth it, the pushing and shoving, the being pushed and shoved, clawing and hissing, pressing against glass for the rocking ride into town, being ejected out like a fart onto the platform, the sweat cooling and congealing around your pits and temples and rage.  Repeat on the way home.

It would be so easy to make an alternate way, but that would only serve the majority, and what’s the sense in that?  So loosen your knees, hug your attache, keep your nose up and to the side and go with the flow, the heave ho.  And repeat and repeat.
