A general view looking away from the Plaza Constitucion terminus, with the tracks from the sixteen platforms funnelling down to four, with sidings either side.

The signals on the gantry are of the three-position upper quadrant type; one is in the clear position for a departure. A corner of the signal box is just visible on the left.
