Ungated railway crossing the roadway. A man with a red flag is all that is required in 1948.

Another "run round loop" so as an arriving train can have their loco change ends so allowing it to propel the wagons into the factory unloading bays.

SS Cars, Triumph, Riley and Dunlop all had factories in this part of Coventry so a Piston Ring works would fit in with the other industries. The railway station on the right of the picture was Foleshill station.

and again, details correct. The line to left of centre is a long siding into the First W W munitions It had a level crossing over Yelverton Road, and the gap between the houses is still visible today if you know where to look!



The overbridge, signalbox and station footpridge are all clearly visible.
