No, the proposed building at Foley Park site will just be for storage.

With the extra coaching stock coming on the SVR I suggest there may now be an increasing priority to find some extra siding space. Is there any news on this scheme?

Looks good.

I see a 200m train is marked on the plans, does that mean the loop might be signalled to allow trains to pass? From the write up on svrwagons it doesn't appear so, but it's just a thought?

Where exactly is this as I can't quite picture it.

Sharpo's question made me realise I had put an older version of the plan on the web site.
I've now updated the web site, so sorry Patrick, SVR Live is now out of date.
The latest version has only one point connecting the new yard to the main line with the run round loop within the yard. I think the main reason for this was to add only one extra point to be controlled by Kidderminster. All other points will have ground levers.
Adding a loop within an existing section (Bewdley South to Kidderminster) would have made the signalling more complicated for no real benefit, as there's already a loop immediately outside Kidderminster.

A really exciting project I hope comes to fruition sooner rather than later!

Expanding on Sharpo's comment, would it in theory be possible to double track to here all the way from Kidderminster station?

No problem. I was going to upload the new version but clicking on the image doesn't open it?

This picture taken from the Stourport Road bridge shows the site when the sugar beet sidings were in use.



The sidings were on what was then BR, and is now SVR, land, the boundary hasn't changed.

I'm sure it would be possible to double the track from Foley park to Kidderminster, but with a single track tunnel between Foley Park and Bewdley, it looks like a lot of work for no operational benefit to me.

Sorry, I changed the image, but didn't specify that it should open the same link. It should be working now.

When opening the new plan in SVR Wiki only the shed end now fits on my screen and can't see the remainder.

If the run around loop is now in the yard (which is a good idea since shunting will not impinge on the running line), the way the boundary trees taper in at that end ((as shown in the earlier plan on SYR Live), would seem to leave no room for an engineering siding.

Since the track plan is so long, to fit it all in makes it too small to see. Can it be made two parts?

Ta.

But now I can't download it. Any chance you could email it? Or shall I just remove it and redirect to the webpage?
