Anybody that is able to trek or sled across wilderness should not be left out in the cold to freeze. Consider it a rescue missionFWIW, The Alaska Railroad operates the Hurricane Turn, a train that operates on a flag stop basis and will stop anywhere along its route. I'm not sure how that jibes with ADA regulations.
Actually even the Winter Aurora will stop anywhere to pick people up or set them down upon request between Talkeetna and Hurricane. I have seen it done while traveling on it while outside temps were in the -20F range.
But all that is a completely different environment from the midtown station of L'Enfant Plaza in Washington DC, with connections to the Metro, which is the subject of this thread.
