British Railways Standard Class 9F 2-10-0 freight locomotive No.92137 from Saltley shed gets to grips with a southbound coal train passing beneath the Birmingham New Street to London Euston main line and over Brickyard Crossing, Birmingham on the steep gradient up to Camp Hill (circa 1960).
Freight trains taking the route to Lifford Junction to gain the Bristol main line would usually require banking assistance along this stretch to surmount the 1 in 85, easing to 1 in 280 gradient, before reaching the summit at Kings Heath.
