A side platform is a platform positioned to the side of a pair of tracks at a railway station, tram stop, or transitway. Dual side platform stations, one for each direction of travel, is the basic station design used for double-track railway lines. Side platforms may result in a wider overall footprint for the station compared with an island platform where a single width of platform can be shared by riders using either track. In some stations, the two side platforms are connected by a footbridge running above and over the tracks. While a pair of side platforms is provided on a dual-track line, a single side platform is sufficient for a single-track line. Where the station is close to a level crossing the platforms may either be on the same side of the crossing road or alternatively may be staggered in one of two ways. With the'near-side platforms' configuration, each platform appears before the intersection and with'far-side platforms' they are positioned after the intersection. In some situations a single side platform can be served by multiple vehicles with a scissors crossing provided to allow access mid-way along its length.
Most stations with two side platforms have an'Up' platform, used by trains heading towards the primary destination of the line, with the other platform being the'Down' platform which takes trains heading the opposite way. The main facilities of the station are located on the'Up' platform with the other platform accessed from a footbridge, subway or a track crossing. However, in many cases the station's main buildings are located on whichever side faces the town or village the station serves. Larger stations may have two side platforms with several island platforms in between; some are in a Spanish solution format, with two side platforms and an island platform in between, serving two tracks.

Gunma Prefecture is a prefecture of Japan located in the Kantō region. Its capital is Maebashi; the ancient province of Gunma was a center of the horsebreeding and trading activities for the newly immigrated continental peoples. The arrival of horses and the remains of horse-tackle coincides with the arrival of a large migration from the mainland. From this point forward, the horse became a vital part of Japanese military maneuvers displacing the older Yayoi tradition of fighting on foot; when Mount Haruna erupted in the late 6th century, Japan was still in the pre-historical phase. The Gunma Prefectural archaeology unit in 1994 was able to date the eruption through zoological anthropology at the corral sites that were buried in ash. In the past, Gunma was called Kenu Province; this was divided into Kami-tsu-ke and Shimo-tsu-ke. The area is sometimes referred to as Jomo. For most of Japanese history, Gunma was known as the province of Kozuke. In the early period of contact between western nations and Japan the late Tokugawa, it was referred to by foreigners as the "Joushu States", inside Tokugawa retainers and the Tokugawa family symbol is seen at public buildings and shrines.
The first modern silk factories were built with Italian and French assistance at Annaka in the 1870s. In the early Meiji period, in what was locally called the Gunma Incident of 1884, a bloody struggle between the idealistic democratic westernizers and the conservative Prussian-model nationalists took place in Gunma and neighboring Nagano; the modern Japanese army gunned down farmers with new repeating rifles built in Japan. The farmers in Gunma were said to be the first victims of the Murata rifle. In the twentieth century, the Japanese aviation pioneer Nakajima Chikushi of Oizumi, Gunma Prefecture, founded the Nakajima Aircraft Company. At first, he produced licensed models of foreign designs, but beginning with the all-Japanese Nakajima 91 fighter plane in 1931, his company became a world leader in aeronautical design and manufacture, with its headquarters at Ota, Gunma Ken; the factory now produces Subaru motorcars and other products under the name of Fuji Heavy Industries. In the 1930s, German architect Bruno Julius Florian Taut lived and conducted research for a while in Takasaki.
The Girard incident, which disturbed US-Japanese relations in the 1950s, occurred in Gunma in 1957, at Soumagahara Base near Shibukawa. Four modern prime ministers are from Gunma, Takeo Fukuda, Yasuhiro Nakasone, Keizo Obuchi, Yasuo Fukuda, the son of Takeo. One of only eight landlocked prefectures in Japan, Gunma is the northwestern-most prefecture of the Kantō plain. Except for the central and southeast areas, where most of the population is concentrated, it is mountainous. To the north are Niigata and Fukushima prefectures, while to the east lies Tochigi Prefecture. To the west lies Nagano Prefecture, Saitama Prefecture is to the south; some of the major mountains in Gunma are Mount Akagi, Mount Haruna, Mount Myōgi, Mount Nikkō-Shirane and Mount Asama, located on the Nagano border. Major rivers include the Tone River, the Agatsuma River, the Karasu River; as of 1 April 2012, 14% of the total land area of the prefecture was designated as Natural Parks, namely Jōshin'etsu-kōgen, Nikkō, Oze National Parks and Myōgi-Arafune-Saku Kōgen Quasi-National Park.
Twelve cities are located in Gunma Prefecture: These are the towns and villages in each district: Because Gunma is situated in inland Japan, the difference in temperature in the summer compared to the winter is large, there is less precipitation. This is because of the kara-kaze, a strong, dry wind which occurs in the winter when the snow falls on the coasts of Niigata; the wind carrying clouds with snow are obstructed by the Echigo Mountains, it snows there, although the high peaks do not let the wind go past them. For this reason, the wind changes into the kara-kaze. Climate in Maebashi Average yearly precipitation: 1,163 mm Average yearly temperature: 14.2 degrees Celsius Gunma's modern industries include transport equipment and electrical equipment, concentrated around Maebashi and the eastern region nearest Tokyo. More traditional industries include agriculture. Gunma's major agricultural products include konjacs. Gunma produces 90% of Japan's konjacs, two-thirds of the farms in the village of Tsumagoi are cabbage farms.
The city of Ōta is famous for car industry, notably the Subaru factory. Gunma has a traditional card game called Jomo Karuta. Kiyoshi Ogawa, a Kamikaze pilot who led the attack on the USS Bunker Hill was born in Gunma; as of 2018, Gunma is home to eleven of Japan's over thirty Melody Roads. 2,559 grooves cut into a 175-meter stretch of the road surface in Katashina transmit a tactile vibration through the wheels into the car body. When driven over at 50 km/h it produces the melody of "Memories of Summer"; the other roads can be found in Minakami, Kanna, Kusatsu, Nakanojo, Takasaki and Maebashi. Each is of a differing length; the songs range from the regional folk song “Kusatsu-Bushi” in Kusatsu to “When You Wish Upon a Star” in Takayama and “Oh My Darling Clementine” in Tsumagoi. Naganohara used to be home to a Melody Road playing “Aj, lučka lučka siroka”, though the road in question was paved over in 2013 due to noise complaints.
