Avoid Interaction With Other Humans in New Train Design displays a novel design idea for a train: single-occupant and four-person lounge ‘spaces.’
I happen to think this is a great idea and that you can run through many similar ideas on trains which is part of why they are such a great mode of transport. Instead of being stuck with a single type of car there can be many different car-types on a single train and thus the pricing structures and types of transportation become much more complex and desirable.
The biggest bonus is that trains could roll out experimental cars from time to time and see how people liked them while not losing that much if they didn’t turn a profit.
