The Platforms

Describe Online


There are two separate platforms leading south from an open area. Platform 1 lies east of platform 2.

The open area is surrounded by fencing with an entrance from the pavement into the east side, just north of the ticket office building. There's a wooden fence across the ends of the tracks.

To Reach

You leave the ticket office, via the north exit, via a short ramp leading north onto platform 1. The ramp from the south exit leads south onto the platform.

For platform 2, continue (north) beyond the end of the tracks, turn left, continue to the fence in front of you then turn left again (south) along the platform.
