The GWR box derelict following the LMR decision to close the through lines to Snow Hill as can be seen from the signal identification plate Saltley now assumes responsibility for signalling in the area. The through lines have already been lifted but the GWR water tank survives and can be seen to the right of the arriving class 116 DMU.
