Via the Lifts

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the wall of the covered waiting area, jutting out. Go round this wall, turn right, continue to the wall in front of you then turn left and locate the lift, on your right.

From the rear of the train, you pass the waiting room before the wall retreats left into the covered waiting area. Turn left into this, continue to the wall in front of you then turn right and locate the lift, on your left.

The call button is to your right of the door. Go down to ticket office level, leave via the other door then turn left and continue into the ticket office. Turn left, into the subway, continue to the far end and find the lift door on your right.

The call button is to your right of the door. Go up to platform level, leave via the same door then continue beyond the rail on your left, then turn left onto the platform. We believe you're near the front of shorter trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

From the front of the train, you pass the wall of the covered waiting area jutting out. Continue, past this and the pillars supporting the canopy, till you reach the wall of the waiting room. Move right and continue through the door into the waiting room.

From the rear of the train, you reach the wall of the waiting room, which retreats into the covered area, turn left into this area, and go through the door on your left, into the waiting room.

Continue, down three steps, then down a flight of steps. turn right, go down a flight of steps then turn right again and go down another flight, to ticket office level.

Move left, past the end of the wall in front of you then continue forward into the ticket office. Go past the sales windows on your right and a blank door then take the turning right into the subway.

Note that this has a low ceiling, about two metres. Continue to the end, turn left and go up two flights of steps to platform level. Continue to the far wall then move slightly left to find the door onto the platform. Go through this and turn left. We believe you're about in the middle of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Westbound

Via the Lifts

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass a series of posts before you find the rear of the lift building. Continue past this building, including the rail which juts about a metre beyond the building then turn right (180 degrees) to the lift.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass the waiting room before you reach the gap to the lift. turn left, into this space then turn right to the lift.

The call button is to your right of the door, go down to the subway, leave via the same door then turn left.

Continue through the subway then take the turning right and continue, past two doors on your right before you reach the recess to the lift. The call button is to your right of the door, go up to platform level and leave via the other door. You come out under the covered area of the platform, with a rail in front of you, go round this rail, onto the platform, we believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

Via the Stairs

From the front of the train, you pass the waiting room (the wall doesn't jut out) before the wall retreats into the path to the car park. Turn right here and go through the door on your right, into the waiting room.

From the rear of the train, you reach the wall of the waiting room jutting out. go through the door, towards the right-hand end of this wall, into the waiting room.

The steps to the subway are in front of you, there's a barrier between the right-hand side of the stairwell and the wall and a gap to the left, which is not of concern. Continue forward, down two flights of steps then turn right into the subway.

Note that this has a low ceiling, about two metres. Go through the subway into the ticket office and continue beyond the end of the wall on your right.

Turn left, continue, to the five steps down to street level then move left to the steps up towards platform 1. Go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up a flight of steps, before turning left again and going up a third flight into the waiting room. Continue forward, up three steps, then through the door in front of you and turn right onto the platform. We believe you're about in the middle of the train.
