How disruptive do passengers have to be to warrant delaying a service for them to be removed? Was on a train earlier this week where this happened, and having witnessed the altercation was very surprised this course of action was chosen
It depends on a lot of factors, not least on how disruptive I think they are going to become after we have left the station and I'm on my own, locked with them inside a vehicle going at 125 mph, in the middle of nowhere, with only a whistle for protection.
Delay minutes are not something I worry about. Mine and my passengers safety are my problem. Delay minutes are my managers problem.
The train I was on the conductor had already confiscated the passengers ticket and receipt and he was getting off at the next stop which was 4 minutes away from where the train was held. There was no shouting or swearing although he did refuse to purchase a new ticket. Ironically though after this the conductor refused to sell a ticket to a passenger as she asked for the conductors name as she was a little on the rude side
First of all, you'd need a strict definition of what "misbehaviour" is. Which is really, really subjective.
