Didn't manage to find any significant history on this place.
It was used for the Rail Exress Systems sector of British Rail which was responsible for transport of mail and parcels traffic, including the Travelling Post Office trains, as well as taking over the charter operations from Intercity.
The sector had maintenance depots at Crewe Diesel, Bristol Barton Hill, Cambridge & Euston Downside. Rolling stock was also maintained by other sectors at Heaton depot in Newcastle and Liverpool Edge Hill.
The company was bought by EWS in 1996, later renamed DB Schenker Rail (UK) in 2009.
It is not clear when the sidings were closed, my guess is early 2000s.

Lovely place to explore on a sunny day although it is essentially a giant greenhouse now. It hot enough to be anyways!

Also made a trip to the UP empty carriage line tunnel the same day but didn't take enough pics to post a report so here is the only decent one I took.
