Train Threshold

Photo of woman pushing a baby carriage across the minimal gap between the platform and train.
A woman pushing a baby carriage demonstrates that the line’s use of load adjustable suspensions, straight platforms, and precision docking trains that stop at precise locations enable vertical and horizontal gaps to be minimized. The track is direct fixation; this may prove more difficult to adjust for wear in future years and may cause larger vertical gaps.
