122 DMU

1969

A class 122 single car waits to leave Stourbridge Town for Stourbridge Junction in 1969. This station was systematically vandalised over the years, with the canopy first to be removed. Then a new bus shelter and portakabin ticket office were erected where the running in board is. This enabled demolition of the remaining building. Since then the station has been relocated and a new transport interchange opened. The line used to be double here, with a nearby Signalbox controlling it and eventually they were converted to 2 single lines with the right hand one continuing down a fearsome gradient to a goods depot. Notoriety was gained during the 70s with the unit running through the stop blocks, the most serious being in 1977 when the front bogies dropped into Foster street. Fortunately it was Grand National Day and most of the good people of Stourbridge were backing their ggs! Stephen Burdett.

122 DMU

circa September 1969

Taken at Birmingham Snow Hill in Autumn 1969, the days when at least a shuttle service ran to Wolverhampton Low Level. This single car dmu sitting in bay platfom 4 looks a bit lost in the grandeur of the setting but was sufficient for the expected custom. The disused Great Charles Street exit is ringed by the delicate Edwardian wrought iron fencing & gate between bay platform 4 & the Down Main platform 5. The tracks are still in the platform lines but the through lines have been severed at this point. Pete LG99.

The Saturdays only 12.40 to Wolverhampton Low Level waits to leave the largest unstaffed halt in the world, resting in the murk of Birmingham Snow Hill. Only two platforms remained in use for 10 daily departures. Seven on a Saturday and none on Sundays! Stephen Burdett.
