Baggage Train

Interlocking rolling luggage

Struggling through the airport system a couple of weeks back with three pieces of rolling luggage*, it occurred to me that they would be a whole lot more manageable if they had wheels at both ends and some kind of Velcro buffering system, so they could be chained together like a train.

* Quite how that came about is due to an unusual conflence of several distinct factors:
a) US airports charge heinous rates for trolleys, and I never have that much money in quarters.
b) My back was feeling a bit iffy, so I had a small roll-on as my carry-on bag.
c) We had an extra suitcase for the stuff our son wanted us to bring back.
d) We actually had four pieces of rolling luggage, but my wife, although sociologically disinclined to haul luggage, will deign to pull a single roll-on on occasion.
e) I did end up finding a skycap (=porter), but we still had to get from the car rental place to the terminal.

       Then other people would surely just tag their luggage onto yours so you'd turn around to discover you're pulling about 50 pieces of luggage.

       Four wheeled luggage often has clips for a "leash" to let you drag it along. A slight modification to the "leash" would allow you to do just as you wish.   

       And don't call me Shirley.

       I'm thinking an upright bag wouldn't be so stable in a train as one lying down, as it were.
