The firm that did the comparison of the alignments said in their verbal presentation that the portion on Disney property would be "essentially the same" between the 2 alignments (actually 3 alignments in that area, as the I-4 portion of the northern alignment could be either in the I-4 median or elevated above the roadway, depending on how FL DOT decides to build "I-4 Beyond Ultimate".) Also, concept art previously released shows a stub-end station with platforms on the upper level. I suppose that could change, but I think Disney would want to minimize the amount of elevated track structure for aesthetic reasons. And IMHO it's going to be tough shoehorning a station into that area with tracks at one end, let alone through tracks.Do they? I didn't see any close up of the intent at Disney Springs West of the I-4, 417 interchange, but the high-level show that the 417 alignment crosses the interchange then turns North vs the 528 which shows the route coming straight down I-4 and just stopping at the interchange. And, yes, I know the trains are bi-directional, but are the seats fixed? Are they all reset to face forward at the end points? Or are they all club seating or half and half forward and backward? Would be odd to travel facing forward for a chunk then facing backward without moving
The railcars have fixed 50-50 seating, as is common in Europe. It's also pretty common in Europe for a train to pull into a stub-end station and continue it's trip with the opposite end at the head.
