Are the sidings at Wool still used for freight, namely aggregates traffic(?) and MOD traffic?

Thanks.

I think they are available for use, but the sand traffic doesn't currently run.

Thanks for that. I was unaware of Wool station until a recent visit to Bovington museum, one exhibition here included a picture of an MOD train headed by a Railfreight liveried Class 47.

Id assume the sidings were also connected with the former nuclear flask traffic that used to run to the nearby Winfrith experimental reactor

Doesn't Winfrith have its own branch off the mainline?

It has (or had) an exchange siding on the down side. No idea if it is still usable, but I don't think it would have been considered a branch as such.
