|Quoting Meristem (Thread starter):|
one cannot take the luggage cars onto the train platform.
|Quoting AndyEastMids (Reply 1):|
when passengers end up leaving carts unattended on platforms when they board a train and the subsequent possibility of the cart ending up on the tracks.
|Quoting Meristem (Reply 5):|
Sorry for lack of clarity-- we were moving from T3 to T4.
I had not thought about the risk of loose luggage carts on the platform; my mental picture (clearly too restricted) was of taking the cart into the train. I'll assume the train moves at faster speeds than monorail systems such as in JFK or SFO, as the carts can be carried into those. Any idea of the speed of the LHR trains between terminals?
|Quoting LHR380 (Reply 6):|
T3-T4, why does it say T4-T5 in your thread title?
|Quoting Meristem (Reply 7):|
The train is used to link T1-3 ,which are clustered together, to T4-5, which are farther away from the T1-3 cluster. The thread title was not indicating the terminals for which I used the train. It was indicating "the train that links one side of LHR to the separate set of T4 and T5"

I don't know the JFK system, but the system at SFO is not a monorail.
|Quoting LHRBFSTrident (Reply 12):|
In common with LHR's infrastructure, JFK suffers from a basically 1960s design which has seen many updates and 'improvements' over the years superimposed upon the original concept
