1st class on KCRC

Oh, just reading BWG's comment on 1st class compartments on the KCRC (Train from Lo Wu [border to China] to Hung Hom [Kowloon].. I get these trains to Kowloon from Tai Po, and I know there are 1st class compartments, but my BF pointed out to me how people get on them, via swiping their Octopus smartcards on the reader on the platform. I was wondering how one should know if folks without proper tickets sneak into them. Well, at least measures are being put in. But it's so much more expensive, but there are many an occasion when even 1st class passengers were standing!
