Following on from the long-running thread on things that you used to see travelling on BR that you don't see today at www.railforums.co.uk/threads/trivia-things-you-saw-travelling-on-br-that-you-dont-see-today.151953/ I thought it would be nice to have a thread on things that you used to see on the railways of mainland Europe that you don't see today. Here's one to start you off: coaches with different coloured upholstery for smoking and non-smoking accommodation. Until the 1980s or '90s Switzerland had green seats for non-smoking and red for smoking in second class, and first class had green/turquoise for non-smoking and orange for smoking. The former East German Deutsche Reichsbahn had red seats for non-smoking and dark brown for smoking. SNCF Corail open saloon coaches originally had pale grey ceilings in the non-smoking and dark blue ceilings in the smoking sections. When built in the mid to late 1970s, they had about half smoking and half non-smoking accommodation, but as the amount of non-smoking accommodation increased you could no longer always go by the colour of the ceiling. Today, AFAIK almost all trains everywhere in mainland Europe are completely non-smoking.
