You have to press a button to get off or on the train

I almost ended up travelling express to Ipswich when I couldn’t figure out why the doors weren’t opening at the Milton stop. Thankfully I noticed the button in time, but seriously: why aren’t the doors automatic?

I quite like manual doors for A/C energy efficiency

That entire article is pretty terrible. The Facebook comments had most of it demolished in about half an hour.
