Do's anybody know why there is old railway track in the car park on Platform 1 side?.
And there is a sign for Motorail check in, did they years ago load cars from sidings there?

Yes. There would sometimes be a row of cars snaking through the station concourse towards one of the platforms on the west side. I remember seeing the 6-wheeled pink Rolls Royce used in the kids TV series "Thunderbirds" being loaded onto a motorail train. Had to take a second look because I guess that I'd assumed that the vehicle in the films had only ever existed as a non-working scale model. (For all I know, It might still have been a non-working full-sized model!)
