But the "Smoking Gun" that has yet to be found is a photo of the siding with just a wagon in place. I know that's not exactly the subject matter that a photographer would have pointed his camera at in the 1930s, but I'm hoping something will turn up one day.



Of course one will, almost certainly just a few weeks after you have irretrievably completed the cameo layout - and it will show for certain that that tiny but logical guess that you made doing it was wrong. Been there, done it!

A view of the old brick structure, still in place, which I guess was a 'rest room' for the crew unloading wagons of coal into the Chiltern Court bunkers.  The picture gives an impression of the space behind this structure where the siding would have been.

From the info in the plans you sent, I think that's a Lavvy..
