Looking south-east with the line to Water Orton on the right
and the old track to Hampton on the left. The water tank on the Hampton branch
is the same as that seen in image 'mrwj1174'. The
large building with chimney stack behind the bridge carrying Station Road over
the railway is Birmingham Corporation's Pumping Station for their Water Works.
On the right beneath the bracket signal is a recent installed sign with the
legend 'Car 6 Stop' indicating where the driver of a DMU with six cars should
stop. There were others too, for four and two car sets of DMUs.
