SCRCA Location Type: Platform (for passenger use)

Location Type Code
PL

Passenger platforms are raised areas constructed beside railway tracks to provide passengers with easier access to train carriages at railway stations.

Note: The term 'platform' can also be applied to raised areas constructed to facilitate the loading / unloading of freight. However, for the purposes of the SCRCA Project (to avoid confusion and to follow the terminology used on the 1911 landplans), the latter are referred to as 'docks', 'cattle docks', etc.
