On the 24th June 2014, a total of 56 freight trains ran through Walsall and of these, 13 could have used the Walsall-Lichfield line (had it been there) to save mileage, fuel, time and MONEY!

This Saturday ( 22/11/14 ) 46233 is working a special from Derby to Euston. It is working via Castle Bromwich, Sutton Park Line then south through Walsall.
Just think how much easier it would be if it could turn right at Wychnor Junction, right at Sandfields Junction and carry on south through Hammerwich, Brownhills, Pelsall and on to Ryecroft Junction.
