I've said it many times before on this forum. Fainting has been an issue everywhere for the stated above reasons. When it comes to a jurno saying because of a lack of oxygen i'd take it with a grain of salt. Especially when it comes to pregnant women as many things can cause them to faint during pregnancy. Just like these apparent Mumbai express trains that we have here. You would be very surprised at how much air actually gets pumped around on trains.

For interest ..

Melbourne Age --> Signalling trial could revolutionise trains, but will we benefit?

Quote
... After years of experts calling for high capacity signalling to allow trains to run more efficiently, Public Transport Victoria has started testing the technology along the bayside corridor, in Melbourne's southeast.

The trial is likely to take five years, will not be complete until after the next state election, and commuters are unlikely to see any impact unless the pilot is expanded more broadly. So far, no firm commitment has been made beyond the first stage.

In an interview with The Sunday Age, Public Transport Victoria chief executive Mark Wild said high capacity signalling would allow about 24 to 30 trains to run per hour – up from the standard 20 trains under the conventional signalling system ...

Role: Business Case Manager, Risk Manager

European Train Control System Level 2 (ETCS L2) is an in-cab signalling system that provides train on train collision and over-speed derailment protection. The ETCS L2 program represents a key initiative for Queensland Rail to manage increasing safety risks, provide additional capacity to the network (by improving reliability and allowing trains to travel closer together, faster and at a higher frequency) and deliver operational efficiencies ...

Planning moving forward on rail capacity solution for South East Queensland

The Palaszczuk Government is moving ahead with planning to deliver extra capacity on South-East Queensland’s rail network.

Deputy Premier Jackie Trad said the Government was committed to transforming and revitalising the rail network to benefit Queenslanders and provide a more efficient public transport system that can cope with forecast demand.

“Increasing the capacity of our rail network is one of our top priorities, we are working to identify solutions,” Ms Trad said.

“Our assessment will include an investigation of elements of the Cross River Rail and Bus and Train projects to identify a preferred solution to address these capacity issues.

“It will also include a detailed assessment of the feasibility of introducing New Generation Signalling to the inner city rail network.

“Improved signalling would allow for a higher frequency of services on our most constrained part of the network, unlocking additional capacity that would benefit the entire region.


“Considerable cost and time savings will be achieved during this evaluation phase by using planning prepared as part of the previous projects – that work will not be wasted.”

“However, there will be no combination of buses and trains in the Cross River Rail design going forward.

“Buses and trains play different roles in our transport network and combining them in the same corridor does not make sense,” Ms Trad said.

Ms Trad said the project team would deliver an updated business case of a preferred project to be considered by Government.

“The Queensland Government will include a complete business case as part of a funding submission to Infrastructure Australia and the Federal Government for this urgently needed project,” she said.

“We will also seek to re-establish the ready-to-proceed status previously applied to the Cross River Rail project.”

Meh. Labor has been promising to look into new signaling since 2005 or something. I'll believe it when I see it.
