Abstract

The aim of this research is to elaborate, describe and propose solutions for some of the issues of luggage storage on passenger trains, using a systematic approach. Specifically, the paper discusses and works out different technical solutions for better baggage handling, which include alternative transformed luggage racks (oven, trench and adjustable table). Pet compartment is also designed to solve the inconvenience of traveling with pets on passenger trains. These solutions are evaluated from different perspectives, taking different views into account. To obtain the optimal result when applying a particular solution, the characteristics, interior design and specific equipment of different types of passenger trains should be considered.
