Photographic notes
Stand on the island platform, near the steps. The bridges can provide quite a nice frame to the picture. Although there is along straight section to the north this view is unobtainable due to the platform widths. So it is platform shots or northbound.
If you have steps you can get good views from the pallisaide fence at Bottom of car park, but its not as good as on the platforms.
