In the grand scheme of things, this isn't much to complain about. I'm sure in some ways it's a good thing. But this morning in Savannah, I walked out to the platform to catch 97 come through like I've done on many occasions in the past without issue. I was promptly called out by the station agent (lady I'm never seen before) and told to wait inside until the dreaded kindergarten walk. Not being a passenger, I just stopped to the side. When the automated announcement told passengers to make their way to platform 2, the kindergarteners walked to the gate and about to pass through when agent yelled for them to stop. Train entered station, conductor got out, came all the way to the gate and scanned everyone before even the first passenger got off. Savannah is a service stop, so no matter how late the train is, there is almost always at least a 10 minute dwell. Regardless, I find this to be hugely inefficient. Anyway, just a little odd I couldn't just hang out on the platform anymore. I know many stations are like this, so no biggie. Just another reason for me to meh over Amtrak.
