Times when the quiet carriage doesn’t, apparently, need to be quiet

quiet carriage
One of Queensland Rail’s cartoons as part of their train etiquette campaign
  • If the train is stationary at its departure station
  • Up to 5 minutes after the train has left its departure station
  • Up to 3 minutes before the train arrives at a station
  • Whilst the train is stopped at a station
  • Up to 3 minutes after the train leaves a station
  • Up to 10 minutes before the train arrives at its final destination
  • Any time at all (if you’re an ignoramus)

As I’ve written in detail before, we should get rid of quiet carriages. It’s the expectation that kills you.
