Shots can be had in both directions and from all platforms, but shots of southbound trains from platform 3 in the early afternoon would be considered best, but here are numerous opportunities.
There is a footpath along the line to the south of the station, but the area is too overgrown to get any type of shot in. This was always overgrown, even over 20 years ago, so there is no hope in 2007!
There is also what appears to be a foot crossing just to the north of the station, but as yet, your intrepid explorer has not found the time to fully investigate, so until next time.
