We were looking at a DP with the entry door in the middle of the coach. I realize that this is pretty much the standard with front engine coaches. Is this an issue with DPs? What about resale of a coach that is configured like this?
I don't think it will make any difference in resale. It probably will only depend on if the layout and functioning is at least as good as the door-in-front coaches. One thing which will be critical will be a very good, very easy to use, cover over the stairwell.
