Blackwell: summit of Lickey Bank, with Up express
View SW, towards Bromsgrove, Worcester, Gloucester and Bristol. Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 No. 44962 (built 6/46, withdrawn 12/67) thunders past the cottages as it breasts the summit of the Lickey Bank (two miles at 1-in-37.7 from Bromsgrove), with a Paignton - Birmingham relief express. On the Down side is the Box for the shunters who had to pin down wagon brakes of descending goods trains; note the relevant notice-board. Blackwell station (closed 18/4/66) is just behind the camera.
