The photo above is shamelessly taken from Bing maps 'Bird's Eye view' - click on the photo to take yourself to full map. If you look you can see a kick back just above/north of the loco works yard. We were on 'point care' (as S&C maintenance is known on the works) yesterday in this area and we were checking this little used part of the system. Down at track level it's quite different. There are years' worth of weeds and the kind of shrubbery which chooses to grow by all kinds of railway lines and the area feels a little removed from the busy works which surrounds it. It could easily provide the inspiration for a whole selection of industrial layout schemes.
As you can probably tell, I'm still very much enjoying my time at the Steelworks, despite having to be up this early for work!
