DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is a separate platform along the south side of the station, serving trains towards Dalmuir, Helensburgh and Milngavie. There’s tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

The rear (east) part of the platform has yellow walls with recesses containing bench seats, whilst the front (west) has a plain brick wall.

To Reach

Note that this station is now gated. There's a single bi-directional Wide Aisle Gate between the ticket office and the lift. There's also a gate line across the main passage, between the cross passage and steps.

There is lift and stairs access between the platform and ticket office. The stairs route is quite complex, so you may prefer to use the lifts, see below.

Via the Stairs

From the ticket office, you go down 14 steps, going south. Turn right (west) go down five steps, going west. Turn right (north) go down three steps, going north. Turn left (west) go down 13 steps, going west. Turn left (south) go down five steps, going south. Turn right (west) go down 16 steps, going west to platform level.

Via the Lift

See the Lifts page for details.

As you come in through the entrance, turn right and find the lift door on your left.

As you leave the ticket office, towards the exit, take the turning left and find the lift door on your left.

Go down to platform level, leave via the other door then turn left onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.
