LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham
Broom Junction Station: mrbj538
Looking southwards from the Redditch end of Broom Junction
station's down platform. The replacement single station name board is, unlike
that sited at the other end of the station (see image 'mrbj159'), erected so that the name is parallel to the
platform edge. Note too the reference to the Stratford line on the name board.
The lack of traffic might indicate its a Sunday as the SMJ did not operate a
service to Stratford upon Avon. The station master at Broom Junction was given
responsibility for the next station on the line, Bidford upon Avon, as part of
economies that were initiated to face the competition created when the
Stratford Blue Bus Company was formed in 1927.
