This is exactly what we do not need. It's the sheep that all file out of the ONE door closest to the exit that delay trains at platforms for up to a minute. News flash, every door gets to the platform at the same time, and there's 17 (or 11 on a Siemens) other doors to choose from! Heaven forbid people weren't so lazy as to walk an extra 100m.

Well I actually walk down the platform because I want a carriage that is not as full.

The network is actually quite well designed, with the position of the exits staggered in different positions along a line.

On the Cranbourne line, provided you are sure that the train will be pulling into the deadend siding, then front carriage (heading home).

Ever traveled on a packed Werribee train? If you're in the first carriage heading towards Werribee everyone crowds in hoping to be the first out at Yarraville, Newport, (Westona - if going that way), Laverton, Williams Landing (if using the ramp) and Hoppers Crossing. This is after being crammed in on a city loop service to north melbourne in the front carriage to be close to the ramps so you can acutally catch your desired train...
If still existent Paisley would be up there too.

Dread having to get out at Hoppers during peak hour because I'll be crammed trying to get close to the exit so I can actually cross the road to the carpark whilst the cars at the crossing wait for the boomgates, OR I travel in moderate crammage and get stuck among everyone touching off their mykis and have to wait for the pedestrian lights so i can get to the car park. Still, I cannot complain - it cannot be as bad as Laverton.

Have not been on a peak hour Werribee train for about 19 years. Long before Myki and I did not get off the train anyway. I just stayed on and went back to the city.

Sounds like the Werribee line is just too busy.

Edited 19 years, not 9.

I've always found the best doors to use are the ones on the platform side

Just playing devils advocate here and swimming against the popular mocking trend of the thread, but perhaps the OP has a disability or other reason for wanting to know this information. As a former platform attendant, this was not an uncommon question, particularly by those whose travelling experience could be harder then others because of their disability (be it blindness, wheelchair, or whatever).

Or maybe I am growing soft as the years go on, who knows.

This post is funny........  
Imagine if we had one in the Adelaide section, most of our services are operated by 2 car sets,  though some services still are operated by one (3000 class) railcar,


I agree, anyone would think some will die if they have to walk an extra few metres!

Best door for a Grange Adelaide metro service would be either the front or the back door! Laughing

Pressman;
Is that because i am a frequent user of that service and the passengers would rather jump out of a moving train and onto the tracks than be in the saloon with fabulous mr heath?

Heath my reply had exactly NOTHING to do with you whatsoever and ABSOLUTLEY nothing to do with whether other passengers like or dislike you!

Think about my reply above with relation to Torrens5022's post.
He said some services are operated by single 3000 class (mostly Grange services) and I said that in that case the best door is either the front or the back!

From memory 3-car sets are used on interpeak Alamein-Camberwell shuttles, but that's it.

3 cars are used for some Ringwood services, as well as the last two up SMG and down HBE services of a weeknight.
