GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Lines Served

This is a through station on the line from Glasgow Central to Kilmarnock, Dumfries and Carlisle. It is also the terminus for some local services from Glasgow Central.

Layout

The tracks run approximately northeast/southwest, on a raised viaduct.

There are three platforms, numbered 1 to 3 from the southeast. Platform 1 is a separate platform along the southeast side of the station, whilst platforms 2 - 3 are on the northwest.

Platforms 1 and 2 are through platforms. We understand that platform 1 serves southbound trains towards Kilmarnock, Dumfries and Carlisle, whilst platform 2 serves eastbound trains towards Glasgow Central. We noted 2 and 4 car stop signs behind the rear of these trains, which suggests that these platforms may sometimes be used bi-directionally.

Platform 3 is a bay platform, beside the northeast half of platform 2.

The ticket office is at street level, being under the tracks towards the southwest end of the station.

Accessibility

There is step-free access from street level into the ticket office, from which there is lift access to platform 1 and stairs access to all platforms. There is ramp access from Arthurlie Street onto platforms 2 - 3. We therefore believe the station is accessible to Guide Dog and wheelchair users.
