Pros

Cons
Give passengers a list of train etiquette :) People should know to speak in their ‘library’ voices when on the train.
Tips
Use your ‘inside the library’ voice please. Bring headsets so others do not need to listen to your videos or conversations. Don’t have heated discussions on the phone or negotiate business. What is the matter with people?
