This appears to be Marsh Jct. Bristol. A large number of BR(WR) hydraulics were stored here from about October 1971 awaiting the call to Swindon Works and oblivion. The nearest should be easy to identify as it is in maroon livery, with full yellow ends which only a handful carried at withdrawl - and I don't think it is D809 Champion which was withdrawn at Old Oak Common so would have gone to Swindon from there.
