Close up of image 'mrwo1054' showing some of the many
marshalling and storage sidings located on the up line at Water Orton station.
On the left an unknown MR 0-6-0 is shunting some of the many wagons that the
yard could handle. Bob Essery states that the marshalling sidings could
accommodate 947 wagons whilst the storage sidings could accommodate a further
624 wagons. There was also additional capacity in the engineer's siding on the
down side as well as local goods sidings on the up side.
