Uncompleted route - the GWR was trying to get into New Street, but in the end went for their own 'Snow Hill' station, leaving this partly-built viaduct. Being used for the storage of wagons/vans, it seems.

Site of original GWR Bordesley station at 113-115 High Street opened in 1856-8 and closed in 1915 when relocated to the SE side of Coventry Road. Bordesley was the first station after Snow Hill on the original Birmingham and Oxford Junction railway and had two facing platforms accessed from the High Street by tunnels beneath the two Broad Gauge tracks. The land and buildings were sold to Robert Large Baker in 1858 who continued to practise as a Surgeon until 1869 when he was joined by Thomas Savage who continued the practise at 113 until he too was joined by Thomas Ravenhill in 1878. The building continued to be occupied by numerous surgeons and physicians until the early 1950's though shared with the station manager up until the station's closure in 1915. The site remained unused until 1936 when the area facing High Street was occupied by Tricroft Motors until 1940. They also occupied a larger site on Deritend High Street facing Alcester Street. WW2 bomb maps at LoB for Autumn 1940 shows a direct hit between the frontage buildings and railway line which caused extensive damage which remained undeveloped until planning application for 116 High Street dated 24 August 1949 whilst the site was occupied by Ernest Williams, General Merchant. From around 1963 the building became known firstly as the One, One, Three Club then the Dolls Club and finally Daddy Long Legs, the building being demolished in the late 70's. Original site redeveloped and remains today as The Vault Business Centre See http://www.warwickshirerailways.com/gwr/bordesley.htm for early photographs
