The French train operator SNCF, has admitted that the 2.000 new trains which have been ordered are too wide for many of the nation’s regional station platforms.
No worries, work is underway to make the costly alterations so all will be good. Long story short, they used dimensions for the platforms built in the last 30 years but most of the nation’s 1,200 platforms are over 50 years old and narrower than the newer ones and have to be modified.
They obviously needed some of my advice, Think. Then Think Again. Just like measure twice, cut once.
