Well one reason is if it is a plug door it is an FRA defect for it to be open,
loaded or not. If it is a slidding door it is also a defect to leave it open if
it is loaded. So the only correct time for a door to be open is if it is a
slidding door on a car that is empty.

The more I think about this, if only a couple cars in a train had their doors
open it would be rememberable.
I watched a DVD on the RI in the 60s a few days ago. With an hours worth of
trains rolling past I only remember one car with it's doors open. There could
have been more, but I remember one.
So, things like this stick in your head.
I remember as a kid thinking it was cool to be able to see through the car as if
rolled past : )
