A few times when i was a kid, and a trainspotter, i visited Bescot in Walsall which has a large railway depot and goods yard. Now i am a gentleman who takes photographs of trains i thought it was high time i returned. To be honest Bescot isn't as exciting as it used to be when you used to have lines of BR diesels but there was plenty of interest. You can see my photos here.

It is in a bit of a strange area. The M6 motorway is next to the station and depot, as well as a flood plain for the river Tame. Some horses were grazing on the field, sandwiched between the motorway and depot. Most surreal.
