Describe Online


Platform 1 was the original platform along the north side of the station, however, platform 0 was introduced whilst development work was carried out at Waverley Station.

This is now an island platform with the bay platform 0 lying north of the through platform 1.

Platform 1 serves trains to Edinburgh Waverly, Brunstane and Newcraighall, whilst platform 0 is now seldom used.

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

To Reach

There is lift, steps and upward escalator access to this platform.

Via the Lift

The lift is near the near right-hand (northwest) corner of the concourse, opposite the top of the steps. The call button is to your left of the door.

Inside the lift, the control panel is to your right, go down to platform level and leave via the other door.

Via the Escalator

The bottom of the escalator is on the east half of the platform. As you reach the concourse, you're beyond the south end of the gate line, to your right.

Via the Steps

The steps are beyond the lift, near the near right-hand (northwest) corner of the concourse. You go down 11, 11, then 12 steps, going west onto the platform. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
