Well, one would think they can't control tickets in packed trains, but that's not much comfort.

(And I know, they can still try and control you at the station, although I'd love to see how long it'll take before someone gets hurt and general strike ensues...)

As to the legality of this, can't the Commission get them about security matters?

They don't need to control tickets. These are commuter trains. People pay by the month. (Which also means they have a fairly solid idea ahead of time how many people they'll have to seat, for that matter...)

I've spent last month in commute train and honestly there was at least one person in my wagon each day they controlled who didn't have a ticket, despite it being such a train.
It wasn't cramped as you said yours was thought but even in full train, they'd control each time I got in.

Not sure what you're getting at. On my line I see controls once or twice a month in average, maybe. And when the train is crammed, they don't control because YOU CAN'T MOVE. Controllers don't actually phase across matter and packed flesh.

Well, obviously, it seems that your train is far more packed up than the one I used to ride. :p

Yeah, I thought that was obvious from my post. Sorry if it wasn't.

No, I am the one who should apologize for not reading your text correctly.

Don't sweat it, it's okay.
