Looks like the advertising is going to get hidden out by the new doors. Wont be long before that advert might have to be attached to the new safety doors instead of the train doors.
The Yamanote Line auto doors are due to start operation soon. I wrote a few weeks ago about the electronic doors being installed at Ebisu and Meguro. This is an update showing the door panels now in place at Ebisu station.
The panels look a bit strange without the doors attached.
The gap here is where currently the 6 door train carriages stop. Most Yamanote Line trains have 4 doors on each side of the carriage, but they tried out 6 door carriages with fold up seats for a while. Those carriages are going to be retired, but until they are, there will be no safety doors for that portion of the platform.
Looking back at the doors that have been installed at Ebisu station.
This device looks like it will be used by the JR platform staff to check that all doors are closed properly.
An advert explaining how and when the doors will be working.
All of the carriages and doors are numbered. The safety doors highlight this and also give some warning tips about not getting caught in the automatic system.
This portion is one of the 6 door carriage sections.
Do you have safety barriers like this in your part of the world?
