Andrew Smith took the photograph (right) at Malvern Link Station on Sunday 28th February 2021. It shows the infilled site of the former bay platform at the Worcester end of the station. The two photographs below were taken at the same time. No.170513 was working the train code No.1M08, 10.05 from Hereford to Birmingham New Street.
The sidings behind Worcester Shrub Hill Station have had something of a makeover in recent years. For a long time the only use being made of them was by a lone wagon. The four sidings nearest to the station (foreground) were refurbished as base stations for the stabling of Great Western Railway class 800 trains. The GWR sidings are accessed from the south. Recently the next three sidings (background), which are accessed from the north, have also been refurbished.
