Overcrowding on trains not so bad

But only if you change the definition of overcrowding!

Note also the report that of the 1,300 new carriages the government promised 18 months ago, only 423 have been ordered and none of these has been delivered.

My recollection of train overcrowding in the London commutes I did over 10 years ago is on a wet morning and the smell of damp Barbour jackets, a peculiar odor to put it mildly!
