When you board a train, pay attention to the announcements. They will tell you which track the train is leaving from and which direction it’s headed in. You can also check the train track STS signal to see if it’s green. This is a good way to make sure the train is safe to leave the station.
Before a train can depart, it must be checked by the conductor and driver. The departure procedure includes checking the doors closed and the STS signal. The STS signal is activated by an automatic system that is driven in time by the overall train timetable. The conductor checks the STS signal after he closes his doors.
