I went with a guide and we reached there in good time, just minutes before the train came. It was very crowded at the entrance and you probably won't have a good view with so many heads in front of you. Instead, don't be afraid to walk in and stop at side stalls in the middle of the track. We found space next to a stall selling salted fish. There was ample space to take videos and photos of the train and all the action that happens when a train passes through. If you take salted fish, buy from the stall as the quality of the fish is very good. It was 130 baht per pack of 300g. We also shopped inside the market and bought sausages at 100 baht per 1 kg packet. A steal considering that I paid 290 baht at Chinatown just the day before. If you intend to go to the nearby Damnoen Saduak Floating Market - Don't !. You are better off exploring this area instead. If you still want to talk a look at the floating market, tell your guide that you do not intend to take the boat trip and would like to stop in the central area for a walk. You can still see the boats and houses. Your guide will most probably say that the experience is not complete without a boat ride but just ignore that. Don't be taken in because there is a huge commission to be earned. If you have to do the boat ride, choose Amphawa Floating Market instead. Prices there are more reasonable.
