    Macewan Station is already built to accommodate 5 car trains and the platform width is 9m which is what every other station is built to. The part of the station that has a capacity of 100 is the small pedestrian bridge across the track, and as long as people continue down the stairs and fill up the platform below it really shouldn't be an issue. You can also walk west 100m and come into the station by way of the intersection at 105 and 105 and avoid that bottleneck altogether.

    It seems Belvedere is longer then the rest on the Capital line because of the long platform
    Mom said I should not talk to cretins!

    And another reason for bottlenecks at macewan station is frequency of trains. At Coliseum, they could push one train after another. Here, they can only do every 10-15 minutes due to the signalling issue.

    Thanks for the detailed response. That doesn't sound too difficult to upgrade. Does ETS or the city have any plans to improve the bottleneck?
