That would be the old line from Springs Branch to Central Wagon works, a very busy line in it's day.
Thanks Mick.

One of my favourite trainspotting places. After sneaking in and out of "the branch" we used to visit that spot by the shed. In the 60's that line was occupied by engines ready for scrapping, some after only 10yrs under steam, a sad time indeed.
