  The Fatal Journey of Third Class Men on the Titanic : ET Research (2001) by David Gleicher - 3 July 2001
The Third Class survivors Carl Jansson and Bernt Johannesen are typical of several men who survived who were in the forward quarters and who in later accounts reported quickly comprehending the significance of what had occurred simply because water was filling their quarters.
Third Class passengers generally were free to go to the forward Well Deck (the ‘Third Class Open Space’), but under normal circumstances they would not have been permitted to proceed from there to the Bridge Deck and so on.
This is as near a concrete admission as there is, perhaps, of something it is difficult not to suspect when considering the evidence; namely, that the purpose of having the men moved to the stern was not to aid in their rescue at all, but something else.

Rail transit does this best, which is why DVARP believes that good rail transit is essential to the quality of life in the Delaware Valley.
The 'commuter rail' operations of most other North American transit properties are not meant to serve as many different travel markets as the European 'regional rail' systems; they gear their service towards a single market of middle-to-upper class downtown office workers who drive to a station and ride an express train downtown.
Better rail access to airports is needed, but the stations should be at the terminal and not at the edge of the field.

 Rick Steves' Eurail Passes: How Railpasses Work
Differences between first and second class: Normally, first class is configured with three plush seats per row (whether in compartment or open-style seating) and second class has four skinnier, basic seats in the same space.
First class is filled with Eurail and Selectpass travelers age 26+ who had no choice, and business travelers who paid 50% extra in hopes that they wouldn’t have to sit with the likes of you and me.
One long train ride (for example, $210 first class from Florence to Paris) at the end of a 25-day trip can justify jumping from a 21-day consecutive-day railpass to a one-month pass.
