This looked very complicated the first time I saw it. It is fairly straight forward. First make sure you are on the correct side of the tracks going in the right direction - this is very important. Look at your ticket to see what the train number is. Find it on the board where all the coaches are listed by picture and number. More modern boards may be computerized. Locate the coach you are booked on then walk in the correct direction until you see the sign with your coach, train number on it. This way you will be standing in the right place when the train comes in. No running from one end to the other like we have all done at one time or another.
