Seeing those rails still in situ makes me want to grab a couple of wheeled axles and cobble together a little motorbike-engine-driven rail trolley........and ride those rails........
If it's all disused now, it would surely be safe to do so ?

a colleague told me once of an old sidings in that vicinity!
someone told me that they had all been towed away but I think that was somewhere else!
Fantastic explore pics that really do the site justice!
Respect!

Thanks for all the comments guys.
Glad you liked it.

Although the locos and rolling stock are all scrapped, the yard is non operational these days..
It's still very much on 'live railway property' Both running lines see regular trains, and are in full operation either side of the yard.
Just something to note for you guys! :)
