I once heard a story how

I once heard a story how disney wanted to solve the problem of strollers on the train that circles the park. The brass after much deliberation decided to add a car for them at a cost in excess of a million dollars. One exec said" why dont we ask the train operator." They did and the train operator, said "thats easy put hooks on the outside of the existing cars." Always good to actually aske the people involved in the change than have people from the outside to come in and dictate change.
