Watch out for other enthusiasts/photographers. This is a well know place, if you see them, try to make some arrangements about the photos, otherwise someone can be standing in your way.
There are a lot of trees, so summer time is the best time for photos.
Please stay off the tracks, the location is very near to the main line, and is not fenced off.
