There is an assortment of shots which can be had here, although the 'favourite' is of the curves at the northern end of the station from the middle platform. Be very careful, as trains pass at speed here, and the platform is very narrow at the end, so do please stay behind the yellow line. A telephoto lens here is highly recommended, if not essential. The same can be said for shots at the southern end of the station, as the following photos demonstrate.
