An idea of the platform capacities of Glasgow Queen Street High level prior to the planned exensions for EGIP can be gained from this view from 4 weeks before the closure for the Cowlairs Tunnel refurbishment.
On the left at platform 6, a 6 car Class 170 DMU fits with space to spare. In the centre, plaforms 5 & 4 each host a 2 car Class 156, while on the right at platform 3, a 3 car Class 170 just fits with a 2 car DMU behind it. Platform 7 at the extreme left is slightly longer than 6 and platform 2 at the extreme right can accomodate a 6 car unit. Platform 1 is out of shot to the right and can take a 3 car train.
