Princes Dock area.  The transit shed would make a good 'view blocker' at the edge of a layout.

  I am hoping that transit shed 'E' on Prince's Half Tide Dock will be tall enough to block the view of the elevated LOR structure at one end of the diorama - so that trains do not go through a 'hole in the sky'.   I do not have a suitable plan but do have an elevation for a similar shed in another dock.

Waterloo Goods Depot - an example of a BR goods station on the landward side of the dock road.   MDHB locos transferred wagons from these numerous BR depots across the dock road to the appropriate quay, several times per day.

Sketch of wagon turntables/capstans used particularly at the larger, BR warehouses on the landward side.
