Not sure if any of this helps,

 

The building on the left looks like it might house some light industry/engineering

The vegetation is very similar to moorland gorses, in particular the yorkshire moors to the south-west of sheffield

I think this pic shows a working in the late 1960's

I could have sworn that it was Victoria Colliery, just north of Boars Head, Wigan on the WCML - but looking at a large scale OS map - it's not - line curving wrong way and background too hilly.

Judging by the lack of a D on the loco, it is just pre-TOPS. The line looks a secondary route, not a real main line, as it is still bullhead track. There is evidence of spoilheaps on the right. The train appears to be descending on a moderately steep gradient. Maybe it is a diverted Sunday working somewhere in the Sheffield/Leeds/Doncaster area?

It looks as if the formation may have been more than two tracks originally.

 

The RH side especially looks like the remains of ballast from lifted track.
