56007 at Ryecroft Jct
56007 drops down the incline towards Ryecroft Jct with an MGR train. This shot was taken at 11:31 on Tuesday 5th April 1994, and it's probably a Daw Mill - Ironbridge service, although I didn't confirm the exact working. Ryecroft was always a popular spot for local photographers due to the number of different shots available, and the relatively high number of freight trains running through Walsall. This spot on Mill Lane was the standard mid-morning shot for trains coming off the Sutton Park line. However the once open views have almost all been lost to tree growth and palisade fencing, so it's pretty hopeless for photographs nowadays.
