I was reading about (The train-and-platform thought experiment) from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relativity_of_simultaneity(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and was wondering a couple of things.

1.) Would the observer on the train agree with the stationary observer that event A and B happen at the same place in the stationary observer's frame?

2.) Would they both agree that the distance between event A and B is the same?

3.) Would the distance between A and B be just the length of the train?
