Rodalies de Catalunya - Railways of Catalonia

A nice video

Note the high floor: passengers disembark after a ramp is folded down on to the platform.

Perhaps a design that could be used at QR?

Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

I like how the ramp/step lowers down when the doors open. I also like the simple beeps warning that doors are closing. It's over kill that we have a "stand clear door closing" message. The beep alerts are sufficient. It's also over kill that QR guards announce the station straight after the automatic announcement. They also seem to interrupt the automatic next stop announcement. WTF! Also nice wide trains and aisles due to standard guage. Fast acceleration too! Wonder what trains they use? Alstom?

Their trains are quite old, but fast and it really is a regional rapid rail network that.

There are very few stops in the city.

I agree, the ramps are a great feature and something that perhaps could be deployed on QR trains at stations

that have a big gap.
