I was just thinking about buses, more specifically the one's with conductors and open platforms at the back.
Can you imagine a bus without doors nowadays?
Would people be falling off them right, left and centre, or are we still capable of a little self preservation mixed with a sense of danger?

Yes SB, unless you leave a gap where the door should be.
Talking of gaps....

pardon me for digressing from the bus theme, but it made me think about what you miss once they are gone, I remember the trams and trolly buses that ran past the end of our street (gem) and I sometime wonder if they should have stayed, here in melbourne they kept the trams, and the government is still increase the network as they are very efficent movers of people
