On 2 September 156 494 pulls into Ayr with a service to Kilmarnock over the Burns Line. Loadings are generally light, at least between Ayr and Kimarnock: I caught this train and had the carriage to myself all the way. Ayr and Kilmarnock stations have the same platform arrangement and, as at Kilmarnock, most through trains in both directions use Platform 3. The ticket barrier on Platform 4 (left) is needed to prevent free access to the other platforms (there is a ticket machine on that side of the station).
