Overview

There is stairs access between platforms 1 - 3 and platform 4 via the bridge. The step-free route between platforms 1 - 3 and platform 4 is via Smith Street, Homeston and Station roads, see the Environs page for details.

Platforms 1 and 2 are bay platforms serving trains towards Paisley and Glasgow Central, whilst platforms 3 and 4 are through platforms. We believe platform 3 normally serves northbound trains towards Paisley and Glasgow, whilst platform 4 serves southbound trains towards Stranraer.

We noted, however, that platforms 3 and 4 are divided into north and south sections which may mean they're sometimes used bi-directionally.

The doors will open as follows, as you face the front of the train:

There is tactile paving along the edge of platform 1, but none at other platforms in this station.
