I'm just old enough to remember the delight in being able to travel on standard class 4CIG compartments, and have a vague memory of a Wessex Electric compartment carriage. Obviously compartments are no more, but it seems the class 471 Networker, that was never built, Network South East was planning to implement compartment coaches on new build stock well into the 90s. What are the general thoughts on compartments as oppossed to an open saloon. Better with families I suppose, or lightly loaded services that offer more privacy and comfort. Would they have a place on modern day rolling stock?
