e-scooters combined with public transport for covering greater distances is the ideal target mode, but whilst people are buying sub-standard batteries from China for their illegal scooters it does make sense to ban them for the protection of other passengers

No reason for train operators to be obliged to conspire with those people who flout the law on e-scooters in any case. You'd have to be willfully naive to think people were simply transporting their escooter between private off-road venues.
