The Moving Platforms idea can revolutionize the way we change vehicles.

We often see it in action flicks where the antagonist changes trains by jumping across the two moving carriages. Now, a new rail concept will allow everyday passengers to do just that: transfer between two moving trains simply by stepping out the door. The Moving Platforms concept was created by designer Paul Priestman, who wanted to demonstrate convenience in switching lines between high-speed trains without the need for station platforms.

When it's time for the passengers to transfer, the two trains we begin traveling at the same speed and connect at a dedicated transfer walkway. Once the doors open, passengers can simply step across.
