You can stay outside at the small viewing places (I guess if it is fully booked they can be crowded, but I had luck and always found a good place to stay) or open your windows and take the photos from the inside. The windows inside the train might even the better option, as you will not hear the commentary at the viewing places because of the noise from the train is so loud. All in all a really nice trip. I would always do it again.
