Droitwich, 21st October 2014

170509 heads a train bound for Birmingham New Street via Bromsgrove - with signal DS11 off. These signals now have modern health & safety access arrangements,
Signal DS8. It seems unlikely that the goods loop splitter (DS10)will be used, as the siding is heavily overgrown.
DS9 for Hartlebury and Kidderminster and DS11 for Bromsgrove.
 The layout at Droitwich Spa with 172336 arriving from the single line from Bromsgove.
