Off the Rails

with 2 comments

I got home this evening to see this on the news so headed back out after tea to take a look for myself and shoot a few photos. A freight train derailed and hit the wall. Parts of it were hanging off the bridge over the Custard Factory in Digbeth. There was nobody much around by the time I got down there, apart from a couple of Police and the chap in charge of getting it cleared up who were all very friendly. They didn’t mind me taking photos as long as I kept back when the crane was moving which was refreshing.

More shots in a set on my flickr.

Edit: Found this by Alex Hughes who works down the Custard Factory via Birmingham: It’s not shit.
