PTSO or platform depending on the weather
Also, whereabouts are the Harwich stored units, is it a place thats easy to get a photo of?
I doubt it. Most areas around ports are secure and from the pictures I've seen on flickr, you might be able to grab a distant shot from the station. I haven't been to Parkeston for about 30 years so really don't know the area enough

Between Harwich Parkeston Quay and Dovercourt. You can get a good shot of them from the A120 overbridge. It is a very long line if trains though - nine units perhaps?

I guess you will see one end of the train there and as much of the train sitting round the bend towards Dovercourt as the view allows.
From the overbridge you will see the country end of the line of units plus most of the train looking towards Parkeston.
You cannot park on the overbridge, but you can park in Morrisons / Mc Donalds and walk to the brow of the bridge. You'll also get a reasonable view from the roundabout at the Dovercourt end of the bridge.

The train is on a long siding east of Parkeston/Harwich International station in the Dovercourt direction . I'm not sure if any units are sitting in the sidings west of the station - even though I have seen 745's stabled there in the past.
