      In reality the WWI NG railways had very very few passengers wagons/coaches
      because wagons need to be multi-purpose - nothing to do with the prevailing
      military thinking. Ammunition was the main traffic but there were also
      bulky trench and engineer stores in addition to the stuff required to keep
      the railway open - stone and railway material.

      Personnel (healthy and injured) were fitted around these loads. There was
      no way the army/railway could afford to have single use wagons sitting
      around requiring space and maintenance let alone armoured passenger wagons.

      It is a bit ironic to pull the train with a heavily armored Simplex and then
      let the poor troops travel in a very exposed toastrack coach, but this seems
      perfectly representative of military thinking at the time..
