Amtrak Trains don't use the platform at ACE station.  Passengers get on or off the train at Weber Avenue.  It means RR crossing is used for a platform.  Why don't Amtrak trains use the ACE platform?  It's very hard to use the platform for Amtrak because the track is dead end at the north side, so the trains can't go through it.
