At the Railway, 1985

Need a little help with this photo. It’s from the mid 1980’s, so nearly 35 years ago. Clearly the railway is visible and seeing Dechmont Hill in the background means its photographed looking westwards. Workshop or factory in the middle, houses on the right. I suspect this the corridor linking Blantyre to Burnbank. Can you help identify the location?
