We brought a bike down to track 0 at Suburban Station today to see if we could place a bike on the new Silverliner V train mock up.
There are two sets of doors a high platform and a door with a trap for the low platform stations. To the left of the doors were two fold up bench seats which is the wheelchair priority areas. The good news is that a standard sized bicycle can fit in each space fully extended.
We are still hopeful that tie-downs will be included in the final design of the railcar as per the 2005 Technical Specifications Document . With tie downs and no wheelchairs occupying the space it would be possible to fit 4 bicycles in each rail car.
