Spinning the camera around 180 degrees from the previous view shows the rest of the Bluebell compound, with materials removed from the viaduct in the process of being put into storage. There is just enough room for a platform, running line and run-round loop to be installed between the Network Rail line on the left and Sainsbury's car park on the right.
