The View From Platform 1 At Birmingham Moor Street Station

Birmingham Moor Street station is one of my favourite stations, as it is rather a unique restoration and enlargement of an old Great Western Railway station.

I hope the restoration for Crossrail of Hanwell and West Drayton station please me as much.

My train was leaving from Platform 1, so I took these pictures whilst I waited.

Platform 1 and 2 are either side of the lines to Birmingham Snow Hill station and were opened in the 1980s and when the station was enlarged later the buildings were matched to the original terminus, which is Grade 2 Listed

The low-flying barrage balloon in most of these pictures is Birmingham’s Selfridge store.
