LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton
Tile Hill Station: lnwrth711
Looking towards Birmingham from the sidings which lay at the
Coventry end of the down side of the station. The house on the right is an
L&BR structure built to house the crossing keeper and his family. Later in
the 1860s when a station was opened a small brick booking office was built, to
the left of the house and next to the crossing. The building on the right was a
much later structure being added by British Railways together with the concrete
lampposts which were a very late addition. The down platform can be seen in the
distance on the left which constitutes a waiting room and toilet facilities.
The up signal is the taller replacement upper quadrant signal which allowed
enginemen better visibility when approaching the station and which replaced the
shorter version seen in image 'lnwrth709' .
