Yes. they should be fined for:
putting their feet on seats
playing their music too loud
pis sing on the train
hogging their seat with their bag(s), luggage, bikes whatever
in other words, anyone who acts as though they own the bloody train should be fined!

Putting something on a sign doesn't automatically make it reasonable. Nor does the fact that something is 'not difficult' not to do justify fining people for doing it.
It really wouldn't be difficult to give train workers the discretion to fine as and when they feel it is justified, with the sort of matters I've drawn attention to kept as guidelines. Then the issue of whether the matter is being dealt with responsibly simply becomes a matter of the train companies wanting to appear reasonable to customers.
No other company or service treats customers like this. You don't get this disgusting treatment in a restaurant or supermarket or hotel. If a member of staff in a supermarket treat customers the way bus drivers treat customers they'd get fired!
Fines are another way of robbing money from passengers who pay the highest rail fares in Europe.
And to think society wants more people to leave their cars at home and go on public transport, yeah dream on! Being on the dole is a more attractive alternative to commuting!

A better question would be:
Why is there not footstools on a train? People can put their feet up, and they serve as additional seating during busy journeys.
