Hi Jose and all,
I suspect that it may be a re-located and re-purposed wagon turntable or else the building and tracks that the wagon turntable fed have been demolished as part of a track "rationalisation" at some time earlier. 

The beauty of the wagon turntable is that one set of rails on the table is lined up for the tracks into the building and the other set of tracks on the table is aligned for the tracks parallel to the building walls. It doesn't matter whether you push a wagon in from the sidings or out from the building. there is a set of tracks on the turntable ready to catch it. 

Just don't try feeding in stuff onto the wagon turntable from both directions at once. :doh:
