In order to have platform doors the trains have to have the same distance between the doors, which is impossible with different types of train sets.

Are you two afraid your driving skills are not good enough to stop at exactly the right position? :D
Nope, I ain't afraid of nothing, that is why I don't wanna have ATO on my lines! :lol:

Well technically you can make platform doors that support variable distance between doors by making both sides slide (so no fixed wall, both both 'door' and 'wall' can move in both directions). I don't think you will see that a lot in real life though, as most metro systems where they use platform doors have dedicated rolling stock for those lines, no need to make a more complex solution for a problem that only exists in theory.

I think the real question here is: do you have platform doors in your garage that only open when your car is parked there precisely on the right place?
Nice one! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I shouldn't have said that, I'm sorry about that :oops:
