37057 at Walsall Tasker St
For a few weeks in August 2001 the long-dormant Tasker St sidings were brought back into use for the loading and unloading of engineers materials. It didn't last long, within a month or two the operation had been moved to the re-instated engineers sidings on the opposite side of the running lines. Conflicts with the parcels operation that shared the same yard was one reason given for this move. A visitor to Tasker St during this period was 37057, seen here at 09:15 on Friday 17th August. Metal sleepers were being loaded into the short train of OBAs and OCAs. Elsewhere in the yard are old track panels which had been unloaded from previous trains.
