New Platform III

I painted a single stripe of Rust-Oleum Blossom White, and it suddenly looks like a British platform:

The white strip along platform edges was introduced so passengers could determine the platform edge during the blackout period just prior to WWII. (Blackout regulations were imposed on 1 September 1939, before the declaration of war. These required that public lighting be shut down and all windows and doors be covered at night to prevent light that might aid enemy aircraft.)
