Signs clearly showing platforms. I used the Australind service to Bunbury, very picturesque trip with lots of leg room.

Caught the Australind train from Perth to Bunbury, great service on the train the journey went quicker than I imagined, the interchange from train to bus was a quick 10 minutes and the rest of the journey was great which took 45 minutes.
