Space travel!

One of the more modern exhibits at York's National Railway Museum is this section of a Japanese Bullet train. The coaches are five seats wide yet the amount of leg and elbow room is still very generous compared to British or French trains. Notice the gaps between the seats and the width of the aisle!

  1. Having just spent 11+ hours jammed into a flying sardine can, I can only dream of traveling with the luxury of personal space all around me. But, don't the Japanese also hire people to jam huge crowds into the cars of a bullet train? Or is that just in the movies?
