Any photos of goods depots?

Goods depot/platform for unloading vans. These must exist but what height were the platforms? My hunch is they were generally half bogie height but I guess some are level with the box floor. Can't find any pics in any books.

Points in small yards

I'm building a small shunting layout - based on small US designs. i.e. loco and 2 wagons and 3 short sidings serving various industries. I'm sure such arrangements also exist/existed in China. I'm assuming manual points and no signals but is this correct ? … could electric motors be used in such cir...
