Selective Door Opening

You will probably know of the problems FGW have with short platforms and unlocking the doors.

Well as I was waiting to get off the train the other day I was given unfettered access to the panel on the train that is to blame. Pic below.

What problems, apart from the yet to be confirmed correct stopping position of the trains there have been no more problems than any other new method of workings. The system has been proved a success. So far!

You're right of course - it's just the stopping position.

I suppose it's a good thing really that we stop the unsuspecting public from getting out of a door into thin air..

The great Roy Harley and I had a conversation about the system this morning although sadly I was not permitted to have a go.
