LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham
Barnt Green: mrbg617a
Close up of image 'mrgb617' showing Barnt Green's new goods
yards facilities installed after quadrupling of the main line to Birmingham.
The signal box also had to be replaced although it was sited within a few yards
of its original position, just a few yards further away from the main line. The
purpose of the post by the buffer stop was to act as a 'stay' to the very tall
signal located on the up main line. The notice fixed to its side instructs
'PASSENGERS MUST CROSS THE LINE BY THE BRIDGE' with the smaller notice on the
right stating BEWARE OF TRAINS.
