The line finished at a ship building yard just beyond Bertrams. From this view you could see the Lissahalley Dolphins in the river, they went in around 1942, lasted until after the war, but in this view we see nothing of them, hence could be prior to WW2, but only if I have got the location right (negative's owner knows this was taken circa 1937/8). Note the rope over the buffer beam, a feature of this system was the parallel shunting operations. The loco on one line and the wagons on an adjacent line. This was done because there were only two crossing places for the loco to reach the other track, hence if my thinking is right then the photo shows No 3 at the Eastern crossing.
