"134 km" stopping platform... without a platform



Is it really a stop? Oh and I was wondering when I looked at your pictures: what is this wire russian rolling stock have on their roof?
Yes' it's really a stop, but it's the "stop on demand". Train stops here only if there're people waiting for it or someone asks a driver to stop.
Concerning the wire - it's the antenna of radio communication. There're two types of antenna, they're depicted on the following pictures:
