The Rosslyn Metro Station is an underground station with 2 split platforms, one on each level. Each train goes in two directions named for the last stop on the line.
The trains are not on the same platform. If your train is on the Blue Line and you want to go to Franconia-Springfield, go downstairs to the bottom platform. This is also true for the Orange Line trains to Vienna. If you're heading towards either the Orange-Line's New Carrolton or the Blue-Line's Largo-Town Center, go to the upper level.

Rosslyn Metro Station's Escalators
The station has 4 escalators, each one measuring a continuous 205 feet, 8 inches in length. The escalators are a tourist destination in themselves. In fact, station managers are constantly asked whether the escalators are the longest in the world.
Rosslyn's length is third among the Washington Metro system's 572 moving stairs, behind the world's longest uninterrupted span at Wheaton (230 feet), and Medical Center (210 feet), both on the Red Line.
A ride to the top, without walking up, clocks in at 2 minutes and 39 seconds. To avoid accidents and general wear on the long multiple web drives, Metro's escalators run at a leisurely speed of 90 feet per minute. Shopping malls typically whisk shoppers away at 120 feet a minute.
