I think we are now coming off the Chaddesden line, and are approaching the north end of Derby station, with part of Derby Works visible on the far left.

Correct, the train is just crossing the 'Five Arches' bridge over the River Derwent. Derby Junction box on the left.

This is Derby Jc - with the north end of Derby station in the distance

The train is coming off the Down line doing a weave to get across the Up Goods (the loco has just reached this line) on to the Up Passenger) the line on the left is the Down Goods from Derby South. This place thus marked the change of direction for operating purposes.
