[/its handsworth wood long gone b]



Handsworth Wood railway station was a railway station in Handsworth Wood, Birmingham, England, on the London and North Western Railway's rail link between the Chase Line and the West Coast Main Line. The station operated between 1896 and 1941, and like neighbouring station Soho Road, closed during the Second World War.[1] as a result of decreasing use by passengers who possibly found the new 16 bus route more convenient.

The station site lies in a cutting through Handsworth Park, adjacent to St. Mary's Church.

Here's another one for us train buffs. Can you name the station? I have put 2 photos on if it helps.





 
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Wednesbury.


I knew it was not a station south of the city centre.


Regarding the second photo here is some history of that locomotive.  She spent all of her working life based in the Midlands and was frequently seem around Snow Hill.

  Mere Hall. Built March 1950. First shed allocation Wolverhampton, Stafford Road. March 1959 shed allocation Wolverhampton Oxley. May 1965 and last shed allocation Tyseley. Withdrawn October 1965. Scrapped at Cashmore's, Great Bridge.
