Railway lines west of the station, looking west, with trucks (GE are Great Eastern, MR are Midland). On the left is the fence of the cattle market, with a ramp coming down from the market towards the tracks, though John Newman thinks there was not a cattle siding here, it was in the station. On the left, part of an advertising hoarding ‘—ays –al waters’. Information from John Newman. See also M580 and M581, and M2777-M2788.
