At the time of our survey, we found no indication of designated stopping points, though we assume that the front of longer trains will be near the far end of the platform.

As you go from the front of longer trains, you're on an island platform with platform 2 to your right. Continue, past a series of pillars in the middle of the platform, then past the concourse, till you find the wall beside the steps to the subway on your right. Turn right here.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you may be on the part of the platform with an unused track bed to your left. Continue towards the front of the train. You pass the wall beside the forecourt, which includes a normally locked gate, before you reach the wall beside the steps to the subway. Turn left at the end of this wall.
