Freight train descending Lickey Bank
View northward, towards Blackwell and Birmingham: ex-Midland Birmingham - Bristol main line. The locomotive is one of the numerous Johnson/Deeley 5'3" 3F 0-6-0s, No. 43210, this one lasting until 8/59. As a descending Class H loose-coupled freight, this train will have stopped at Blackwell before beginning its descent, for wagon hand-brakes to be pinned down.
