Ticket inspectors, easy, just do what Northern Rail did on Sunday of Tour de France and put them on station platforms, Seems it was easier(cheaper) than putting on more trains. We did suggest to first train guard that we were happy to be squashed in even more but he still refused.
A friend was telling a story last night about London Underground and how when one train failed they tried to put everyone on the next train, but one set of doors refused to shut properly so everyone had to get off and train had to set off with those doors open. Apparently the coach chassis got bent slightly, enough to stop the doors working properly, but when the empty train pulled off the coach straightened itself before the next station. The inspector at the next station was more worried how extra 2 trains worth of passengers were going to fit on the next train.
Interestingly passengers were not complaining. Suspect with our privatised greedy railways the offices would be buried in letters of complaint!
I have seen similar trains modelled in OO9.
It always amazes me how Indian Railways, whose administration is based on our old colonial bureaucratic system, allows such flexibility with passengers on trains. Possible their own safety, as trying to tell hundreds of people they can't get on the train might be very unhealthy.
