A friend at work rides the Rock. He says the quiet cars work out quite well and rarely does anyone violate the noise ban. He says some people have quiet conversations, and its not a problem. Hopefully it works out like that on the other lines. I for one cannot wait to have a car free of tourists and their screaming brats running up and down the aisle. Also, if the cars are popular, it will be more difficult for ignorant slobs to hog seats and stick their dirty shoes all over them.
