Yes, this is an issue, but unlike the MOB gauge changing coaches there
are no thoughts about variable floor height. A 60 cm floor means 5 cm
difference to Swiss or Austrian or many German platforms and 16 cm
difference to high German platforms - just about the maximum that still
is judged "possible".


I think that the planned upgrades to the St. Margrethen-Lindau-Munich line also included standardization of the platform heights at intermediate stations. I know that this was already an issue in Kempten as far back as the 1980s.
