Nope. All a waste of dough. Platform extenders for when a track is OOS for any reason is also a tremendous waste of dough and time (since they have to be brought to the station and set up); way better if you can walk across the track to get on the train, as evidenced in that shot in the OP. There's a reason why SEPTA's new EMUs have long doors.
