it really do seems like a pretty pointless idea to restrict people from getting down to the platform. I am from europe and there the train platforms are always open to everyone who wants to go there. anyone who have taken a trip on the chinese highspeed rail network knows how much emphasis the authorities put on it giving a neat and efficient impression, and the ban on platform tickets is definitely made in that light.
It will not affect me personlly, but i believe that this ruling like so many others are only affecting the weak groups, for example elderly or migrant worklers with lots pf luggage. Lets hope they will change the rule, at least there are some track record of the power that be changes rules based on popular dissatisfaction

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
