Describe Online

From the South Bridge

Go down 10 steps, going east onto a landing, which has blank walls. Turn right (180 degrees) and go down 11 steps, going west onto a second landing which has blank walls. Turn right again (180 degrees) and go down 11 steps, going east onto the island platform. You're on platform3, a wooden rail runs southwards from the foot of the stairs, below the steps between the first and second landings.

You're at the west end of the platform.

A metal grid runs along the middle of the island platform, providing useful guidance.

There is no cover on these platforms except the overhanging roof from the waiting room.
