all sitting comfortably

A few years back train companies in Osaka introduced 'Women Only' carriages so that females could make-up in private without males wondering why they were doing it in public.

Within days of the 'Women Only' carriages taking to the tracks, bald people were up in arms and demanded their own carriage as well. The 'Bald Only' carriages have proved extremely popular, especially with people who have no hair.

The latest specialist carriage to be introduced is for 'People Who Want To Sit In Perfect Alignment With Each Other Only'. Anyone caught sitting in a slightly different position from others on the carriage will be ejected at the earliest possible opportunity, such as when the train stops and the doors open.


Paasengers on the 'People Who Want To Sit In Perfect Alignment With Each Other Only' carriage.


A boarding point for people without hair.

I thought the reason they separated the cars by sex sometimes was because there were too many groping and upskirt related type incidents occuring on the trains..?

It IS. The post highlights Englishman's sense of humour. I think he just tries to find a different take on the Japanese psyche. I'm sure there are no actual "bald only" carriages in Japan, it's probably some Engrish translation or something.
