Video footage showing Quattro Rail Division using the Mothballed South Staffs Line (Anglesea Sidings Branch).

Quattro use a stretch of line from there depot (the former Charringtons & BP oil terminal) upto the former Hammerwich Station (Footbridge). This is mainly for training purposes, as Quattro have a training academy at the Brownhills site.

I first picked up Quattro moving along the line the other summer and got as close as i could safely to take some of the early pictures but the days of me clambering railway banks for a better view are very limited at moment in account of my recovering arm fracture. It wasn't until Rob came across video demo that all became crystal clear since we instantly recognised all the areas of the SSR used in the shots. Interestingly their demo video credits do not mention "With Kind permission from Network Rail" Wonder why but better not enter into a debate here on that

Finally! I now know what has been going on down the line. Ive noticed the overhead lines whilst going along the M6 Toll, and always wondered what the crack was.
