Will Passengers Step Up Into Scotland’s New Trains?

Obviously, I’ve not seen a new Class 385 train in the metal yet, but I despair at this picture.

As I wrote in A Design Crime – Class 395 Train Platform Interface, which is about another Hitachi product; the Class 395 train, it appears that the train-platform interface is no better.

It could be that the train was not in one of the platforms that it will actually serve, but if the Overground and its Class 378 trains were able to get it substantially right in 2010, then surely new trains and a rebuilt railway should be tip-top.
