There is a bridge here.
I could see this bridge from my garden, it led to a siding at the rear of houses in Umberslade road Selly Oak and stopped at Raddlebarn road opposite the country Girl pub. Many wagons were stored there waiting to be called into action.I have cycled under this bridge a number of times and never given a though as to what it was used for.

One system served the filter beds at Minworth originally had a standard gauge link. The narrow gauge system was later. In this view Motor Rail 7224 was at work.
