A train bound for London King's Cross arrives at Platform 11 under the footbridge to Market Street.

"Passengers are left much more to their own initiative than on the Continent. They should therefore make sure that they are in their proper train and compartment. A seat is regarded as 'taken' if a hat, suitcase, or other article is placed upon it; in the chief express trains seats may be booked in advance (1/-). The control of the window is by custom conceded to the passenger seated next to it, facing the engine; considerate travellers, in this position, take the sense of the company on the subject of ventilation. It is forbidden to enter a moving train, or to walk across the metals when a bridge or subway is provided. The railway officials are usually civil in answering questions, and enquiry-offices and train-indicators will be found at most of the larger stations. - Americans may be reminded that the ticket-office is called the 'booking-office', that the conductor is addressed as 'guard', and that the baggage is better known as 'luggage'. -- Muirhead's Short Guide To Edinburgh, 1953
