Tyseley's dmu set T315 (51352 presumably closest) ticking over at the south end of Walsall station sometime in 1991.

By 1991 the original South Staffordshire Railway buildings had been demolished on the left and the later interesting round booking hall behind right had been replaced by new department store over the tracks. Pete LG99.

Leaving Cradley Heath Class 117 set T315 (presumably 51394 + 59745 + 51352) tackles Old Hill Bank on its way to Birmingham New Street with a service from Kidderminster. March 1990. A standing start from Cradley often posed a task for an ailing dmu as the bank started at 1 in 49 and for the next mile was in the main 1 in 51!, Stephen Burdett.
