Actually, in reality passenger trains can arrive to different platforms that were assigned previously. Not always but it happens day to day, especially at bigger head end stations. It’s announced by speakers, and displays. Its very unlikely that a train waits at the entry for longer time, just because the pre assigned platform is occuppied. The controllers redirect it to an empty platform as soon as they can.
