Hey guys. Short turning or departing immediately is only done if the trains are late. Sometimes after signal, traffic or switch issues you will find trains all back to back. As for platforms. Yeah they switch all the time usually were on tracks 2 and 3 in the morning and around 1400 switch tracks or directions but use the same tracks. At night they usually start to use track one as well. Very important to look at the tracks on the monitors all the time. Even if there is a stuck train somewhere we will need to go around it somehow. As an operator we have no codes. The gsr in the middle just logs on a trip number and the rest is automatic. We never short turn at bloor. It would mean getting paper work from the rtc and operating at way slower speeds for a bit. Would just not be efficient but can yes still happen.
