I don't like the idea of unmanned passenger trains, in an emergency a conductor can ensure everyone is evacuated safely, a conductor is a visible deterrent for bad behaviour.

But I don't see a problem with automated driverless trains, they make sense, automated systems can be much more reliable and have more sensors than a human driver.
