[QUOTE=Soundgod;973931]Personally, I don’t think they need to institute any new protocols or procedures.
People just need to be aware of what they are doing and need to remember to use their radios.
[B]Seriously, how do you not know there is a train in the station if you’re a platform CM in that station?![/B] As soon as Pink began to enter the station, someone needed to be on the radio telling Pink’s driver to stop.
If in the future, they want to add rear view cameras to the Mark VIII monorails (these would be the replacement monorails for the current Mark VI trains), fine. If they need to install additional sensors to the switches, fine.
But seriously, since 1982 when the Epcot line was built, this has never happened.
It’s called [B]PAY ATTENTION!!![/B]
I will say this though, I’m very surprised that Pink’s pilot didn’t notice he was on the wrong beam, even if he was paying more attention to blindly backing his train.[/QUOTE]
That is the problem right there! I’ve read that a platform CM is NOT REQUIRED after hours . . . only radio control. So there was NOT one there, or with a flick of a switch he could have stopped the crash.
The problem is the SWITCH, the switch was the wrong way and caused the Pink to go onto the EPCOT track and NOT the MK EXPRESS track.
