Quiet Trains

So today I am going down to London, (3G works on the train too you know), and have been booked into a seat on the quiet coach. At first I was a little disappointed because it generally means that you have to turn of you phone and personal music is frowned upon. Then as I settled in to it I really liked the quietness, Just the tapping of a few keyboards. It came as quite a surprise to me how annoying it then became when people got on at Derby and start to have some loud conversations. If you think that a quite phone conversation is annoying then why should a full on and high spirited conversation be considered okay? I did refrain from saying anything when one of the people in the conversation broke off to make a phone call. A small tut and a glance round was enough to keep me happy.
