SP0687 : Snow Hill station South Signal Box

taken 42 years ago, near to Birmingham, Great Britain

Snow Hill station South Signal Box
Snow Hill station South Signal Box
The last trains ran south from Birmingham Snow Hill station on the 2nd March 1968 after which the line through the tunnel to Moor Street closed and this box became redundant. After Snow Hill closed completely in March 1972 and the tracks were lifted this once proud station became completely derelict. It was finally demolished in 1977. Fortunately the mistake of closing this line has now been rectified and this spot is once again the site of a busy passenger service, to the extent that the station, albeit only with 3 mainline platforms at present, is stretched to capacity. Compare this view with SP0687 : Birmingham Snow Hill. This picture was taken from roughly where the further tram is standing, looking to the left.
