    Thats what I thought but one thing that threw me. if you turn it around 180 degree then it does look like the train has just come off the line coming in from the hope valley line. I thought the bin liner trucks came in from Newton heath, at Miles Platting divested to head over the Phillips Park branch line and then headed down to stockport, this doesn't look like it is coming in from stockport however and the Tunstead workings heading out to Northwich wouldn't use containers.

    There are booked 153/170 pairs at Longbridge in both peaks on the Wocester / Hereford workings, I think, off the top of my head about 4 workings go that way as well as the booked pairs on the Rugeley / Walsall route. So the Google car was there at just the right time!

    Not sure about the workings out of Moor Street, the one 153/170 combo that used to work on that side was a pair of 170/6 last time I looked....

    Street view on Google Maps now has a historical feature, so older images can now be enjoyed.

    It's only a pair of 170/6s during the morning peak. The units go onto Tyseley afterwards, detach, and one of the 170/6s comes back out with a 153 for the rest of the day on the Snow Hills.

    You can be at Taunton and only see the train you're on...

    It definitely looks that way... though I would've thought if it had run through buffers it would show at least some sign of damage or be skewed away from straight. Is that road perhaps where they load/unload units from road trailers?

    That looks like Mk2 stock to me, not coupled, and I agree about road loading - it's directly in line with a huge gate. None of the other tracks there are.
