Getting on and off the train

Electrostar train - a big step

Getting on an off trains these days is still not always as easy as it might be. If the station platform is at the correct height (915mm) and on a straight stretch of line, there is not usually a problem. Otherwise there can be difficulties, which vary according to the type of stock and the configuration of the platform, especially whether it is concave or convex.

This exhaustive study by the Department of Transport discusses the issue in detail.
