Work on the track is now complete. With only a few ajustments to be done on the points and signal signs.

The images show the new run around loop, on the former South Staffs Line heading towards Wednesbury from Walsall. The Photos were taken from Wallows Lane bridge, the zoom flattens the picture and makes it appear that a local couldn’t fit between the buffer and the points. Its obvious that a fence has been erected to the left which would have lead to Bescot curve.

Has this been used - a couple of trains on Monday in real time trains didn't report anywhere in the Bescot area but haven't spotted anything since.
02.08 Rugeley-Stoke Gifford now has a time at Bescot Curve, but has never reported there - has any lighting been erected?

Hi Mike,
We will try and find out. I haven't heard it is being used as of yet, but I may be wrong. Will get back to you
