Birmingham New Street - Southern Approaches: lnwrbhm_sa414

Looking south with Curzon Street Goods Station on the left and Proof House Junction signal cabin on the right

View of the track layout looking South towards the multiple junctions next to Curzon Street Goods Station which is on the left and Proof House Junction Signal box on the right. The signal gantry is providing clearance for trains travelling from both directions with most protecting the junction ahead. The signal arms pointing the left are for traffic travelling South whilst the signal arms pointing to the right are controlling trains travelling into New Street station. The lines on the right are the former Midland Railway's lines built in the late part of the 19th century as part of the measures to reduce congestion.
