Does anyone know why the new Siemens 7** classes curve inwards towards the

where it was done to fit in the platforms when they dropped the floor height)

there's a socking great step protruding out probably 6 inches from the bottom

of the door.

This seems a strange design decision to me.

Perhaps the design is intended to PREVENT people standing too close to
the doors when the train is packed.

Doesn't work ,they just lean on them.
