Yes, I believe so.
The issue with carrying passengers while traversing the loop has more to do with the potential for trains to sit in it for extended periods before resuming service - causing any over carried passengers to panic.
I seem to remember that a lot of passengers purposely stayed on the train 😉
15 mins in the loop used to be quite common, and after the tragedy at Liverpool St? on the central trains had to be tipped out for a while though this did not last.
Colour light or not is not relevant to the issues being discussed here.
No, as I pointed out earlier, shearing effect overlooked as train swings, no way of knowing if any one is over carried etc. etc. however, to me as someone who was a part of the initial discussions, colour light was/is very much relevant to the discussion, but my asking was in question to you raising about the loop, so I added about queens pk which lead to asking about colour lights. The reason colour lights is very much relevant to this discussion imo is because of strategy and rollouts to other locations. Now, even though turnarounds on 5rd Waterloo depot procedure is via rear cab clear light, we do have procedure on other roads which requires us to walk through the train and alight at the bank end of the train. A lot of reversing moves for us drain drivers who can be on the Central line on any given day are via colour light, Debden, Woodford 21rd, Newbury pk etc. and at these locations, flash n dash is very much a likelihood and then other issue raised before can ensue.
Detraining on Central line trains never ceased, it certainly did last
