94xx 1960s Bromsgrove

94xx 1960s Bromsgrove

Lined up ready for action
There was a system in operation at Bromsgrove shed , with its comprehensive watering and coaling facilities in order to provide a steady and ready stream of bankers for the passenger and freight workings up to Blackwell and which also ensured that the footplate crews all did their fair share of banking duties on their shift.
This interesting view shows three of the seven Western Pannier Tanks which found their way to Bromsgrove from 1956 awaiting their next call to duty , and it's hard to believe today that this whole area was so wholly engaged in locomotive servicing , especially as it's now all vanished under private development
