if VIA aren’t intending to go double deck on the LD replacement tender, would be nice to see high platforms done here, or at least on the Churchill service platform given the ridiculous length of Canadian these days
I'm not that knowledgeable about current Winnipeg operations - but I believe those platforms may see more use for museum storage than for actual passengers.
Winnipeg is an interesting case study because as a mid-continent servicing stop, access to the underfloor equipment is more critical than in Ottawa or Toronto. Low platforms may actually be desirable/essential here. There is certainly no pressure to board faster. Accessibility is already taken care of somehow.
