Now this is nice!

Once in a while its good to take a break from all those grand railway stations, not to take away from the fact that they are impressive!

Yes, but in that case the doors of the metro cars and the doors of the platform line up, so they are very close together, much like in an elevator.


In this case, because many train have different distances between doors, they simply put the screen further out onto the platform, so people still can't fall on the tracks while there is no train present, very good.

You mean the train 'stewardess' that's supposed to be there while the train is standing still to help people?

He meant to say that he didn't realize there is a space between the PSD and the train.

I like this design very much too, it's a very simple solution to the problem of limited waiting hall space, it allows passengers onto the platform earlier yet still prevents too many people from getting too close to the train.

Did the design of either station allow for future expansion once the need has been demonstrated by the crowds?
