LMS Route: Birmingham West Suburban Railway

Central Goods Yard: mrcgy928e

Close up showing the right-hand side of the depot, the last to be developed

Close up of image 'mrcgy928' showing the right-hand side of the depot including part of the building accommodating the Oil Gas Works, the Hydraulic House and the Electricity Generating Station. The workman appears to be checking the pointwork. The wire operating the signals were laid beneath boards to avoid tripping up the shunters as was the rodding operating the points being inspected. The siding on the right has a very long check rail which according to Bob Essery was unusual in goods depot but necessary here because of the sharpness of the curve.
