Videos of passing visitors
Much as we'd like to, we can't always be at the Old Ticket Office when a special passes through. Those that we do record will be posted to the Mypictureprint YouTube channel with links below.
Rather than standing on the platform or on the footbridge we sometimes video trains going by from inside the ticket office platform bay window. This gives a safe and more unusual viewpoint. An alternative is looking over the platform fence by the footbridge steps. Public access to the old platform 2 upon which the Old Ticket Office stands is strictly forbidden by Network Rail on safety grounds. We have become concerned that on a number of occasions the odd person has ignored both the signs and our verbal warnings choosing to stand or set up equipment on the platform outside the office. This is dangerous as trains can pass the narrow platform at high speed and we would encourage visitors to act in a responsible way at all times and to obey all safety notices.
