LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham

Wixford Station: mrwix587a

Close up showing Wixford station's minimal goods facilities which comprised loading gauge, portable live stock ramp and small goods shed

Close up of image 'mrwix587' showing the station's minimal goods facilities which comprised just loading gauge and portable live stock ramp. The nine five-plank wagons are occupying nearly half of the siding's twenty vehicle capacity and are probably being stored in the siding rather than for delivery to a local merchant or factory. The goods yard was little used by the time this photograph was taken in 1948 closing to goods traffic on 2nd January 1950. On the right the hut accommodating the south ground frame can be seen.
