Passengers must cross the line

The usual rule is that passengers must NOT cross the line, not so on the FCPyF.

Passengers travelling on loco hauled trains to and from Grande may be puzzled by the short platform adjacent to the carriage shed siding but its purpose becomes clear when an autoferro is working the train.

Converted road vehicles like 27 and 28 only have doors on one side, not necessarily the right side for station platforms.

At minor stations this means that passengers may need to alight at ground level but larger stations have a short secondary platform like this one.
