L2962. Looking south along two lines of temporary railway at a contractor's depot on the site of Charwelton Station. Visible beyond is the double span brick and girder overbridge (bridge no. 490) that would eventually cross the main line permanent way, and a staircase from which would bring passengers onto the station's single island platform. Either side of this primitive trackbed are a range of temporary outbuildings, tipping wagons, bricks and timber.
