Passenger service in the 1800s looked very different from what would come a century later. Most travelers didn't go very far. On longer runs, trains stopped at railroad-owned restaurants and hotels for food service and overnight stays. Paying passengers had little reason to move between coaches so open platforms on the ends of the cars weren't a problem.
