Bars to travel

Today I got quite annoyed with a train car when I banged my head on this annoying bar. They never used to have them in Southern trains but I’ve been noticing them more and more.

They’re a symptom of overcrowded trains as (i assume) they’re put in to give people something to hold onto when they’re forced to stand.

Unfortunately for me they are about 6 feet 4 inches from the ground and I don’t tend to see them until after I have cracked my head against them, especially when I’m concentrating on safely getting my son in his buggy onto the train.
