LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham & the SMJ Railway
Broom Junction Station: mrbj1355a
Close up of image 'mrbj1355' showing the LMS Banana train
standing at Broom Junction ready to be taken forward to London. Whilst the GWR
had a more direct route from Bristol to London this advantage was lost because
the MR's At Pancras goods sidings were close to the Banana Depot whilst the GWR
had to tranship their vans across London thereby losing the advantage of the
more direct route.
