    My memory is that there aren't any tracks between this and the car park so hopefully a view wouldn't be blocked by anything other than trees but I may be wrong... There is a chance that it may have now been scrapped as I think they were doing track works at the depot this year.

    Years ago I photographed a 12T van at Springs Branch, but until today its identity had remained a mystery. Thanks to the photo on the website here, I have now identified the one I photographed way back in 1992: https://flic.kr/p/21RpRs9
