I'm surprised they don't use these for LRT systems in places with cold climates. It would be great to have these because you have direct climate controlled access to the vehicles.

A few pics (mostly) from Britain - from one of the pages on my web site.

Sorry, a few are little dark - they were made on a pc with a screen that needed calibrating. When i find the time I plan to re-edit them.

In London platform doors were first introduced with the 1999 extension of the Jubilee line, where they initally proved to be somewhat troublesome as seen here (above) from inside a train when only the trains' doors opened. The view (below) shows the doors in use at Southwark station shortly after opening and with building works almost completed.



---------------------------------------------------------------
Don't become trapped between the doors!

The big 'fear' with platform doors is of becoming trapped between the two sets of closing doors as a train prepares to leave a station.

This almost happened here - fortunately they re-opened and the somewhat alarmed man was able to scramble to safety.

Video-still from the former Maglev at Birmingham (England)



-----------------------------------------------------------
Platform doors help protect against Human Stupidity.

Incredible though this may seem there is a person sitting on the platform edge with their legs dangling over the tracks. Human stupidity is sadly a serious problem; too frequently people doing this lose their legs (or even their life) when a fast travelling train approaches and they fail to get out of the way in time. Sometimes train drivers are also so traumatised that they are unable to continue driving trains.

This example comes from Amsterdam, Holland but it happens here in Britain too.

Another think I have seen quite alot is people standing in front of the yellow line (we don't have PSD's) and because most stations are still low-level, people have had their legs completely destroyed by a train speeding through the station,

Hong Kong: Built during construction: Tung Chung Line (Except Sunny Bay Station which is using Automatic Platform Gates. It is also used in Disneyland Resort Station), Airport Express and Tseung Kwan O Line (Except Quarry Bay Station where it was originally for Kwan Tong Line and the PSDs were not completed until this year)

All the existing underground stations built before 1990s would install PSDs by next year. The MTRC is planning to build the Automatic Platform Gates to all surface and above surface stations built before 1990s.

Guangzhou: All Line 2 (Soon with Line 3) Stations have PSDs. Line 1 Stations would build the PSDs between 2005 to 2008, the first existing station to build PSDs is Huangsha.

Platform barriers are more impressive for heavy underground rail. There are so many doors on each train, whereas on VALs and other similar systems there are only 2-4 cars with 2 doors on each car.

For example, each platform in Hong Kong has 5 doors per side per car, 8 cars per train for the MTR. That's 40 x 2 = 80 doors for a single bi-direction platform.

KCR East Rail has 12 cars, one of which is a special car with only two doors.

The PSDs have only been installed in 12 stations of Taipei MRT Mujha (Muzha) Line since the begining.

Far view of PSD in
Jhongshan (Zhongshan) Jr. Hi. Sch. Station --

However, in the future, PSDs will be installed extensively in newly built stations of Taipei MRT (excl. 6 stations of Tucheng Line) & Kaohsiung MRT.

No gates in Vancouver but these yellow warning strips were installed after someone fell into the tracks and was killed. May have been a blind person. I can't remember. Can't say I like the idea of them because I wouldn't be able to get shots like this:
