The joy of seats

I saw this in Sydney last week. First I didn't believe what I was seeing when I saw a fellow passenger using it. Then I couldn't wait to have a go myself. Here is my son Guy demonstrating. This way you get to choose whether the seat faces forwards or backwards.

    Yes, they're cool! I've used similar seats on the trains in Belgium too.

    Bi-directional seats have been around in Sydney trains for several decades. The original ones had cast iron components!

  3. Any form of empty seat would be appreciated on uk commuter trains!
