    just got back from watching source code

    One of the things i noticed is they have train carriages with two decks on them like a double decker bus.If we looked at this design would it not
    help ease passengers getting squashed at the moment on our trains.

    Too dangerous. You seen the roads in India? X)

    A lot of European countries rebuilt their rail infrastructure after the war to accommodate double decker trains. We didn't.

    Good idea OP but unfortunately we have Victorian bridges everywhere. As has been done in Southampton they have lowered the track to enable modern containers to be used, but this causes flooding if drainage is also not installed. This costs mega bucks.
