The 5th pole?

No the stopping point for the engineer driving a train with 5 cars

There is also a 3 on a bench, a 4 on a trash barrel, and a 6 on the trash barrel just beyond the bench in this picture.

If these markers weren't visible, the train engineers could stop anywhere. With the markers in place, the train engineers will stop in the same spot fairly consistently.

Now you know why some folks stand in the same spot on the platform!
