Amtrak trains could not use the platform at ACE station before.  Passengers had to get on or off the train at Weber Avenue.  It means RR crossing was used for a platform.  Why didn't Amtrak trains use the ACE platform?  It was very hard to use the platform for Amtrak because the track was dead end at the north side, so the trains could not go through it.  Currently Amtrak trains can use the platform since the track was extended and connected to the main line (See the map below).
