LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton
Canley Halt: lnwrchg1300
Ex-LMS 5XP 4-6-0 Jubilee class No 45734 'Meteor' roars
through the station on the down 'Midlander' express service on 26th April 1954.
The booking office can be seen on the right as is the entrance to the platform
from the road. There wasn't a conventional timber barrow crossing at Canley
perhaps because it was built for factory workers at the nearby Standard Motor
Company and also because if required for the odd occasion, the level crossing
could be used. Built at Crewe works in November 1936 No 45734 ran in service
until December 1963 when it was withdrawn from Kingmoor shed in Carlisle for
scrapping at Crewe works in April 1964.
