Sandfields with the Lichfield canal on the left
View taken from South Staffs Water Works. The old Lichfield Canal on the left, with the South Staffs Line on right. Sectional Appendix January 1931, Supplement No.1, January 1st 1933 Page 229 (pg 14) ? Amend ? Sidings connected with Running Lines which are worked under Special Arrangements: - Waterworks ? Lichfield City ? Connected with Up line; electrically controlled from No.1 box, where key is kept. After use key must be left at Anglesea Sidings box. Guards of trains calling at the siding for traffic purposes must, before the engine is uncoupled, in addition to applying the hand brake in van, apply the brakes on a sufficient number of wagons next to the brake van to prevent the possibility of the trains running back. Interestingly, due to the siding only being worked in the Up direction the key was returned to Lichfield via Anglesea Siding box.
