Geocache Description:


Stechford Railway Station serves the Stechford area of Birmingham, England.
The station, and all the trains serving it are operated by London Midland.
It lies at the junction between Birmingham to Coventry line and the predominantly freight - only Stechford - Aston Spur.
The station was of much greater importance at the end of the 19th century and retained a working freight - yard until the 1980s.
The yard tracks have since been lifted except for very few direct Walsall to Birmingham International trains only two platform faces are regularly in use.
On 28th february 1967, Stechford station was the scene of a train collision.
Although up Walsall to Birmingham International trains have a platform face of their own; Down Birmingham International to Walsall trains use the up train platform via a facing crossover.
The 19th century bridge over the railway underwent renovation in August - September 2006.
Stechford station has poor access for people with mobility impairments.
Steep steps lead from the ticket office to the Birmingham platform, and the Coventry platform can only be reached by traversing a futher bridge.
People with mobility impairments are therefore generally advised to use Lea Hall, which is equipped with ramps.
The station is on Victoria Road, just off Station Road which is part of the A4040 Birmingham outter ring road.

Be careful here a busy muggled place, So pick the right moment so not to be seen.
You are looking for what looks like part of the fence. It dosn't have a pen so plz bring your own. (Pliers may be need to remove cache)
