Devil's Strip, any area on a railway system where there is not enough clearance for someone to stand as a train passes by. Name is commonly used by employees of the Toronto subway (TTC).

Generally labels areas in which there is not enough/limited space between the tunnel wall and the passing train for someone to safely stand, such as south of Eglinton Station.

Also labels areas that in which when two trains are passing (one in each direction) there is no space for someone to stand between the two trains, such as between the southbound tracks and the yard tracks near Wilson Station on the TTC subway.
