LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton
Hampton in Arden Station: lnwrhia1558
View of unidentified LMS 2-6-0 Stanier Mogul, on an up local
service freight train, leaving the goods yard with the yard seen in the
distance. The unusual feature of Hampton in Arden goods yard was the provision
of two trailing connections into the down main. As can be seen by the above
image, the locomotive is leaving the yard by the connection nearest Birmingham
whilst at the opposite end of the goods train can be seen the other connection.
This latter connection was sited adjacent to the cattle dock and it might have
been installed to allow a train to leave the yard by this connection allowing
another train to take refuge in the siding in the position seen above.
