It’s pretty crowded and a traffic jam in front of the station.
When facing the front of the station the long stairs to the platforms are on your right hand. Downstairs is a digital sign with train directions, departure times and platform numbers. The sign is somewhat hidden behind a little concrete shet. You have to carry your weight up and down the stairs to the platform. On the bridge at each stair the name of the train is shown (like Kerala Express). At the platform you often find yourself at the beginning of the train. And trains and platforms in India are long. Our train to Agra comprised 25 wagons, each about 20 metres. The AC and first class compartments are mostly at the end of the train where the platform is not that crowded. On the platform we had to walk a few hundred metres to find our train and be sured that we were on the right place. More sure you’ll be when you see your name on the passenger list sticked outside the trains. On your ticket you see which wagon you have. We had A 1. A little red sign in the middle of each wagon.
