Personally I think it entirely acceptable that passengers deal
appropriately with such annoyances, with the aid of a hammer, sharp
instrument or shotgun as appropriate.

You learn quickly. To hell with them:-)
More seriously, I have no objection to "in vehicle entertainment" on
trains, provided that it is done properly. It will encourage more
people to use the trains. Each to their own.
When it is working I like listening to Radio 4 on Mr Branson's
trains, provided that it is not constantly interrupted by bloody
motor traffic announcements from every local radio station around
and which often "forget" to switch off the traffic button when the
announcement is finished, so hijacking listeners. However, the
listening is on headphones and does not annoy others.
Provided they can be turned off I have no objection to television
sets in seat backs, as long as there are still tables. If it can't
be turned off I think passengers are justified in taking the above
action, though a shotgun needs to be used carefully to avoid hitting
That is narrowcasting to individual passengers. Broadcasting to all
passengers in a coach deserves robust action from those who wish to
enjoy the journey in peace. I would include in this action
supergluing the managers responsible for this imposition to the
front of trains, until they learn a little more humility.
