TAKING THE MIDNIGHT train going anywhere can be quite the experience.

In fact, taking any train or DART can be a barrel of laughs if your fellow passengers aren’t up to date on their train etiquette.

There’s a way around that now y’know? And some people really seem to appreciate it.

6. Treat the carriage like their own personal disco.

There’s a novel way to deal with that now too, apparently.

7. Treat the carriage like their own personal strip club.
