View of the layout of Tamworth's High Level Midland station
and the LNWR's Low Level stations including connecting spur. On the bottom left

Tamworth No 1 Signal Box in shown opposite the Pump House which was taken out
of service when Multi Aspect Signalling was introduced with Tamworth No 2
Signal Box (seen on the right by the junction to the goods yard) being the sole
box in control of the station. The goods yard includes a loading dock, shed,
weigh bridge and stables. The Dock by the down slow line was installed from the
opening of the line and was used for the loading and unloading of road
vehicles. In the goods yard adjacent to the siding which ran alongside the shed
there was a floor mounted hand-operated 3 ton crane which would be used to
off-load containers, large timbers etc.
