You can zoom in on any part of the map, scroll up and down, left or right, by using the controls in the top left hand corner.

Alternatively, to zoom in on a station from this map, you can left click on the relevant train symbol. A white 'callout' should appear. Then click on the little blue arrow next to 'more' and select 'Zoom here'. This will also reveal the location of the nearest bus stops.
