GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton
Warwick Station: gwrw396a
Close up of image 'gwrw396' showing the two sidings, one private
the other on railway property, utilised to accommodate coal traffic for the
Warwick Corporation Gas Works. The siding on the left is within the works
boundary line whilst the siding on the right is on railway property.
Examination of the 1925 OS map indicates that the
private siding commenced immediately below Cape Road bridge on which the
photographer is standing. The map shows the narrow gauge line curving away
towards Saltisford Road where the gasometers were sited.
