LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton

Berkswell and Balsall Common: lnwrberk525b

View of the up platform building which accommodated the general waiting room, ladies waiting room and toilet and the gentlemenís toilet

This close up of image 'lnwrberk525' shows the up platform building which accommodated the general waiting room, ladies waiting room and toilet and the gentlemen’s toilet. The LMS encouraged their station staff to keep their stations neat and tidy and this often saw the station staff planting flowers and shrubs into prepared beds. The raised timber platform at Berkswell prevented the staff from adopting such practices and therefore they have had to make do with four half-barrels used as tubs.
