Platforms 2 - 3

Describe Online

Overview

This is an island platform running north/south with platform 2, serving southbound trains towards Perth and beyond lying west of platform 3, serving the Spey Valley Steam Railway. Note that platform 1 is sometimes used bi-directionally, so we suggest you check to find out which platform is to be used for your southbound service.

There's no tactile paving along the edge of either platform.

The Spey Valley Steam Railway is a separate organisation which is closed during the winter months. During this time, the platform, except for the step-free entrance to platform 2, is closed.

Platform 2 extends south of the beginning of platform 3. The southern and northern section of platform 2 is gravelled, except for a narrow concrete strip along the edge.

To Reach

This platform can be reached via steps from platform 1 via the bridge, or the step-free walkway across the end of track 3.
