As a train approaches, sometimes the officer on the platform opens these secret console filled with buttons. What can they do from there, and why is it necessary only sometimes?

@codewiz
Seems to look a nice self destruction switch!

@Ethancdavenport I know, right? I could barely resist the urge to sneak behind that guy and press it to see what happens.

@codewiz control doors from outside, to make sure no one is tangling. train-pilot has same buttons, but can see less from just his mirror and cameras.

maybe bigger amount of people on platform is the reason manual observer is required?

@dym
Also closing the door faster because everyone has boarded and the train is a little late? :thinking_hard:
@codewiz

@dym You're probably right. Sometimes I wonder why we're throwing so much money into self-driving cars when we can't even do self-driving trains...

@codewiz as always, problem is not the self-driving, the problem is people.

@codewiz is he making a remix of the station jingle that plays? Loved those jingles.
