Birmingham Snow Hill 1976

The derelict remains of the huge city centre Great Western Railway's Snow Hill station. This view is looking south from the elevated signal box. By this time the last of the trackwork into the Down bays had been lifted. As can be seen the whole of the northern approach to Snow Hill station is on a viaduct as the land drops down. The northern end, entrance and hotel are all above the track level. That's Livery Street on the right and the city centre on the skyline.

Snow Hill 1972 re-scan (R,013)

Standing in the bay of the once grand Snow Hill station a single W550xx railcar is waiting to work a service to Wolverhampton Low Level. This 'service' stopping at all stations on the route was almost an insult to the bygone era and was a token gesture by British Railways until they could be rid of the line. Snow hill station has had the main tracks torn up and crudely filled in with rubble, the end nearest Colmore Row was in use as a car park. Experience suggests that when nationalised…

re-scanned at 3200dpi. March 2011. This is from a film taken with a camera where, unknown to me, the shutter had jammed open and the exposure was determined by the reflex mirror viz.1/30 sec. Most of the shots are irretrievable.

Birmingham Snow Hill Station January 1975

A telephoto shot looking south of Snow Hill station from the abandoned trackbed, three years after total closure. Bay platform 4, from where the last services ran, is on the right with main line platforms 5/6 Down and 7/8 Up in the centre followed by bay platforms 9 & 10 and Up platforms 11/12 on the far left. As this view shows the level drops quite steeply northwards. The beams of Henrietta Street bridge are in the foreground

No.6926 'Holkham Hall' passing Birmingham (Moor Street). 8 June 1963

The SR coaching stock indicates an inter-regional working, probably Weymouth or Southampton to Wolverhampton. I don't whether the loco was not running well, but the words 'Lord Elpus' are chalked on the side of the smoke box! re-scanned negative at 3200dpi. July 2011
