Stourbridge Town, where the current platform is on the site of the old goods line.
Dudley Port has both a platform on the site of former running lines AND running lines on the site of former platforms.
The current platforms 2 and 3 at Birmingham Snow Hill are where the former platform lines...
I've played there several times - there's a foot crossing near the south end of the western chord and you have to park up outside the triangle and carry all your kit across to the changing rooms. Then cross again to get to and from the clubhouse for the tea break.
It sounds like a recipe for bargain basement, no frills train services to me. Why would operators bother making the passenger experience any better if they're not going to see any financial returns from doing so?
Not strictly speaking a town, but I've often thought that Rowley Regis should have "Blackheath" appended given that (a) that's where it actually is and (b) Blackheath is far and away the more significant local district.
The Chester Road in north Birmingham is a shade over 13 miles long, including a brief stint as Brownhills High Street and two (!) different stints as Chester Road North. Chester Road station is about 2 1/2 miles from the southern end.
Definitely, but it's very unlikely to happen. She was too big for most preserved lines and too slow for mainline work.
This would be excellent to see, but would hardly ever have a chance to run due to its low speed.
It's considerably easier to achieve, given that it only requires two new stations. Camp Hill requires three or four new stations, a new platform at Moor Street and an entirely new connection into Moor Street over land the railway doesn't own.
Yes, everybody should be able to travel without such annoyances regardless of the class on their ticket. But so long as TOCs keep refusing to police it in standard class, I'm going to keep buying first class tickets in order to escape. Which means I'm going to get a tad miffed if doing so...
This makes me wonder how we're defining "see". Because technically you can see every station in the country at the same time from the International Space Station (depending on cloud cover, of course!).
To get more down to earth, you can see both Birmingham New Street and Birmingham Moor...
The last time I went I used Sandling, and it was perfectly fine. The walk from there to Hythe RHDR is pretty much all downhill, and took about 20 minutes. Plus, with Sandling being so close to Ashford it's a relatively short journey from/to London.
I got a bus back up the hill though!
