This is a multi-story Arc dream but the significant pieces of it seem to be related to trains / travel & 'platforms' and different demographic profiles.
I dreamt the 1st part 3 - 6 months ago, it started as I was dream traveling to an old but modern city. It picked up as I was supposed to 'come home' so I was arriving at the train station. The train platform I was supposed to be on was very modern (new WTC like platform, very white, bright, clean, sanitized) but something was wrong and 'dangerous' so were directed to 'an alternate route'.
Upon leaving my "platform" (key element) I was directed further through what was a much older, terminal, that was beautifully designed and still in operation. (think DC / Philly / Newark Penn if it was clean) as I was directed further through I started seeing signs for "authorized personal" and realized we were going deeper underground. At each of these levels, I would see "office spaces" and people working to what appeared to be, wrapping up their business day. As we kept going I became very aware of how large this facility was. Eventually I started to feel anxious about where I was being led, who all these people are, and what they were doing.
My observation of it was that everything occuring was all totally routine. The 'offices' were very similar to old buildings I have been in NYC, lots of marble, old hand crafted dark wood chairs, desks. Iron signs identiying departments. Judge like placards identifying windows, and employee stations like an old bank or city halls around the East Coast. Everyone was dressed in business attire and very much seemed to be going about daily business, paying no attention to us while we descended down escalators and stair cases going from 'platform' to 'platform' where people would be waiting for or catching trains.
I kind of freaked myself out worrying about where my "platform" was and the strangness of it, so the dream faded away.
2nd part was a little while ago, where I was visiting an old job in NYC, and was about to 'head home' so I had to catch a train, but instead of taking the usual subway, I took an above ground train, except it wasn't NY Penn, although it did have that modern LIRR platform feel at first. For whatever reason the "platform" I was on didn't have a ticket booth, it was very similar to Newark Penn's covered but open platform space. When a train arrived I asked the conductor if that train was going to my destination, and he said yes but it was longer route. I said ok and asked how I could get a ticket. He told me to get on the train, which I assumed meant I could get a ticket on the train. Except noone ever came to ask me. A few stations later I was totally above ground, in what was again an older but modern city, but more residential, and less official. I realized I saw a ticket kiosk as I was entering the station and figured I had a couple of mins to jump off and grab a ticket. The kiosk didn't have my destination tho, so I started looking around and realized there were multiple platforms. One over from me, I saw a couple of train conductors hanging out like they do before a train is scheduled to leave. I recognized one as the conductor on the train that took me to my old job to begin with, and I figured maybe I was supposed to be on THAT platform.
As I went to the end of the platform I was on, where I would expect to find a path to the platform over, there was none, but it looked as if there would be one a little further down past the track wall, except there wasn't and that wall was the boundary of a much larger Court yard, that again had the older elements of white stone masonry you see around DC and simillar aged cities. I immediately appreciated the craftsmanship, and saw where all the stairs to each individual platform was, except for the one I thought I needed to be on. It then dawned on me, that maybe that particular entrance was on the OTHER end of the platform. As I headed that way, worried about missing my train, it occured me that I was in a hood neighborhood where something was brewing. People were starting to go into the Court yard to gather for some kind of rally or protest. I started noticing private security for whoever was there... And I suddenly get a phone call where a voice on the other end of the line identified themselves as a person I know of but never met, and answers a question I posted on a social media site a couple of days ago (seemingly totally unrelated to events and anything that was happening in the dream state)
... And finishes with "there is a corporate (site / sign ???) For the platform ...
And I suddenly woke up super confused. I am now starting to wonder if I am perceiving these train platforms as an allegory for online 'platform' and or something similar.
I'll follow back up if part 3 occurs.
