DMU 1950s  Saltley Carriage Sidings

DMU 1950s Saltley Carriage Sidings

With the signal box Washwood Heath Sidings No1 in the background, this was the westerly start of the extensive and busy yards here. No doubt due to their inaccessability photos of Saltley Carriage Sidings are almost non-existent but maps and plans show they were actually quite large sidings being the Midlands main carriage sidings servicing New Street. The covered accomodation was over 7 roads with another 8 sidings outside between the carriage shed and the canal. They were on the opposite side of the main line to Saltley Gas Works and almost opposite the Birmingham Carriage and Wagon Works' Saltley workshops
