Close up of image 'mrwhg449' showing an unidentified ex-LMS
2-8-0 8F locomotive ready to take forward a coal train to Bordesley sidings.
The 8F is standing on the second road of the sidings with the down goods
passing under the middle section of the signal gantry. The interchange of
traffic between the different railway companies was a very important source of
revenue with Washwood Heath Sidings serving both local traffic to Bordesley and
South Western traffic via Bristol.
