POOR INDIANS USED TO TRAVEL BY SUCH COMPARTMENTS IN some  TRAINS  WITH JUST WOODEN SEATS AND LITTLE SPACE [WHILE RULING BRITISHERS TRAVELLED BY 1ST CLASS ]

English origins 
Originally compartment coaches were passenger coaches with several, separate compartments in the same coach body, each compartment having its own doors on the side of the coach to enable passengers to board and alight. The compartment coach was developed at the very beginning of the railway era in England simply by placing a post coach body on a railway undercarriage. Compartment coaches were used across almost the whole of europe and british ruled india and were built right up to the 1930s. On the continent they were sometimes referred to a English coaches or coaches built to the English system.;

{American corridor coach
The compartment coach should not be confused with the today's classic express train coach, the corridor coach which also has separate compartments and is still known as a compartment coach in other languages (e.g. German: Abteilwagen). A corridor coach has covered gangways, side entrances and partitioned compartments with a corridor down one side and was known on the continent as the American system or American coach in the early 1900s}
