Even though I like Bombardier's Trains; Alstom Trains are very well laid out to what I have experienced and their Trams as well. It's just an unfortunate case that Bombardier's brand has been tarnished in Qld due to premilary designed specs from TMR and Union intervention when the trains were put into service. I am sure Bombardier's trains meet international Disability standards in other jurisdictions as well as the company innovating to improve access for the whole general travelling public to their Trains and Trams.

Unfortunately, I think that is a major oversight from the company's side which they are now paying for. Company should not have accepted the design request on the grounds that it wouldn't be compliant.

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

True. Whilst we built to the plans is a valid defence, it doesn't stop the brand being tarnished.
