    I think this was intentional, and I wanted your opinion on it;

    Ealing Broadway Bay platforms doesn't have any steps to get onto the platform.

    But the through platforms have the steps along the entire length.

    What about those heavy concrete or stone posts embedded in the brickwork and projecting track-ward? They look like enough of a "step" for a crew member or other railway employee and no one else should be walking along the tracks, right?

    Well, no trains go there, so there is no reason to spend time giving playsers access.

    I don't really find that really valid, because it's fourth rail, so LU trains would visit there IRL.

    Some IRL pictures or videos of Ealing Broadway would be handy. We could see if they're actually there.

    London Underground isnt in TSW. Why do you want to go there anyway? To wait for nothing?

    If we are going for realism, the won't be any because of the third rail, you can easily walk to the other platforms

    The third rail hasn't really stopped the workmen from walking across the tracks.

    Besides, I am sure that I'm taking the fact that Ealing Broadway has those steps for granted without checking if they're there at all IRL.

    That is one of the Mainline platforms, I’m pretty sure the London Underground ones don’t, from memory. There definitely wouldn’t be a step on top of the third rail, if you slipped well

    Also they wouldn’t be able to make them work because you can’t go on the London Underground platforms

    Of course the steps wouldn't be right by the third rail, that's why the third rail is away from the platform edge at most stations wherever possible.

    Well it's because there are no concequences of walking on the third rail.
