They do have a 48” floor throughout, and the staircases are no wider than the downstairs seats. I don’t know their aisle width offhand, sorry, but they invariably have 2-2 seating below and 1-1 above.

Starting June 4th NC adds another Piedmont to the schedule from Charlotte to Raleigh. This will make 3 daily Piedmont's plus the Carolinian each way each day. 4th Piedmont in late 2019 or 2020.

Very nice touch ...

But not all of the 68-year-old station is headed to a landfill. Two key features — the canopy that sheltered passengers on the platform and some of the wood benches in the waiting room — will be reused. Again.

The canopy and the benches were originally parts of other train stations and are decades older than the Raleigh depot where they found a second life. Now they are considered historic artifacts worth preserving, said Allan Paul, deputy director of the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Rail Division.

Newspaper writer doesn't know much about trains. This will be one locomotive for testing, not one train.
