LMS Route: Birmingham New Street to Nuneaton
Castle Bromwich Station: mrcb1031b
Close up of image 'mrcb1031' showing part of the covered
stairs onto the down platform and on the right, open steps to the sidings.
Behind the down platform was the through down goods line originating at
Duddeston Junction and behind this line, two long refuge sidings. On the 1916
map seen in image 'mrcb1020' the open steps are
shown as being at 90° to the footbridge - as is the case with the two
covered stairs to the platforms - and being of a similar design to them too.
The map indicates too that another island platform existed between the up goods
line that ran behind the platform and the two sidings. In all probability the
open steps are likely to be a temporary structure used only for the period the
British Industries Fair was open each year.
