From Platform 1 Via the Bridge

As you move from the rear of the train, you pass the waiting room and stepped exit from the platform, before you reach the steps to the bridge in front of you.

Go up a flight of steps, turn right and up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, turn right and go down another flight of steps onto the platform. The ticket office is in front of you. You're about in the middle of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 1 Via the Ramps

Go to the front of the train (six car) or beyond the front of shorter trains and take the turning left from the platform. You turn left (180 degrees in all) then go down the ramp. At the bottom of the slope, you'll find a wall with cycle racks in front of you, turn right (180 degrees) and go down the ramp to street level. You're in Springfield Road. We suggest you cross the road, turn right and continue, across a vehicle access road then under the bridge. As you reach the other side of the bridge, cross Springfield Road again. the ramp should be in front of you. Note that Arnold Avenue leads away at an angle to your left, just left of the foot of the ramp.

Go up the ramp to platform level, the ticket office is in front of you, turn right onto the platform. You're about in the middle of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2 Via the Bridge

As you move from the front of the train, you pass the ticket office and the path to the exit, before you reach the steps to the bridge, in front of you on your right.

Go up a flight of steps, turn left and go up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, turn left then go down another flight to platform level. You're about in the middle of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2 Via the Ramps

As you move from the front of the train, you pass the ticket office before you reach the path leading right toward the exit.

Turn away from the platform and follow the path to the wall and turn left. Go down the ramp to street level. You're in Springfield Road. We suggest you cross here and turn left, under the bridge then across a vehicle access road. Continue to the corner (Kirkintilloch Road) before crossing Springfield Road again and locating the foot of the ramp, in front of you.

The foot of the ramp is just south of the pavement along Kirkintilloch Road, you go up southwest, between a shop to your left and a wall to your right. The wall on the right is replaced by a wooden fence before you reach the top of this slope.

At the top of the slope, the wall in front has cycle racks and a bin, the steps up to the platform lead to your left (south).

Via the Ramp

Turn left (180 degrees, east) and continue up the ramp. There's a wire mesh fence and a hand rail to each side. Turn right at the top onto platform 1. You're beside the front of six car, beyond the front of shorter trains. Turn right and move back along the platform.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

These steps are divided into two by a central rail, there was no indication of which side is preferred at the time of our survey. Turn left (south) then go up 12, three then one step, going south, onto platform 1. You're about in the middle of the train.
