Platforms 2 - 3, WESTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

This is an island platform lying south of platform 1, with platform 2 lying north of platform 3. We understand both platforms serve westbound trains towards Helensburgh Central and Balloch on the North Clyde Line or Fort William, Mallaig and Oban on the West Highland Line.

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

Note that there are two tracks south of platform 3, the outer of these does not serve any platform.

To Reach

From the subway, you go up a steep ramp, going east, onto the platform. You're on the west half of the platform with platform 2 to your left (north) and platform 3 to your right (south). There's a hand rail to each side of this ramp.
