Between 2011 and 2020 the building was slowly allowed to deteriorate and the roof, windows and doors were removed.

Near the end of the platform was a milk store (see last photograph). The building was double skin brick with charcoal in the cavity, the charcoal was kept wet, and therefore cool. Unfortunately the building was demolished shortly after the photograph was taken.
