From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Westbound
From Platform 2, Eastbound

From Platform 1, Westbound

Via the Ramp

The path leaves the platform beside the front of shorter trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass the ticket office, then the shelter before you reach the turning left.

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass a stanchion in the middle of the platform, then three posts on your right before you reach the turning right.

Go up this ramp onto Burnbank Road then turn left and continue onto Clydesdale Street.

Turn left, continue over the bridge then take the turning left, Douglas Park Lane. Take the first turning left (180 degrees) and continue down the ramp to platform level then move right onto the platform. We believe you're behind the rear of shorter trains and beside the rear half of longer ones. We suggest you continue forward to the building on your left.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Get off the train, cross the platform, turn left then follow the right-hand side. If you come from the front of the train, you'll pass the shelter, then the ticket office before you reach the recess to the steps. Move right then go up the three flights of steps in front of you. Note that the first landing on these steps is shorter than the second.

Turn left, immediately at the top of the steps and take the turning left. You go down two flights then two steps to platform level. Note that the second landing is shorter than the first. You're before the front of the train, we suggest you continue forward to the shelter on your right.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

Via the Ramp

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter then the building before the gap to the ramp.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you'll find the gap to the ramp before you reach the building.

Go up the ramp, away from the front of the train. At the top, turn right (180 degrees) and continue to Clydesdale Street.

Turn right, cross the tracks then take the turning right, into Burnbank Road and take the turning right, just before you reach the car park. You go down a short ramp onto the platform. We believe you're at the front of shorter trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

The steps to the bridge are just beyond the front of the train. As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass the gap to the ramp, the building then shelter before you reach the recess in front of the steps.

Continue, up two steps then two flights of steps, onto the bridge. Note that the first landing is shorter than the second one.

Turn right at the top, then take the turning right. Continue down three flights of steps, to platform level. Note that the second landing is shorter than the first. You're behind the rear of the train, continue forward beyond the entrance to the ticket office, on your left.
