As you move away from Duntocher Road, you pass the British Transport Police building before the gap to platform 2, beyond which is another building for staff use only.

Turn left, into this gap and continue onto platform 2, eastbound, we believe you're about in the middle of the train.

From here, you can turn right, past the shelter then the ticket office before you reach the bridge. As you approach the bridge, the steps are to your right of the lift. Note that the platform beside the lift building is quite narrow.
