The covered footbridge (with open sides) at Pokesdown provides a good vantage point on a wet day. Evidently the station once had more tracks than the two that now suffice. Most SWT services in the Bournemouth area are handled by 444 EMUs but the Class 450 suburban sets make appearances on stopping trains. 450561 is on the rear of a westbound eight car set making its last call before Bournemouth.
