The up platform building viewed from the down platform on 13 March 1988 there is a marked contrast with the previos shot taken from the Merseyside express, the building now being open to the elements and clearly unused.

The down platform building has certainly fared better over the years than the up, it continues to be used as offices today and this was its function when photographed on 13 March 1988 from the up platform.

The station buildings at Sutton Coldfield Town are constructed from locally made bricks. Lloyd and Son were still operational in 1913 based at the Sutton Old Yard and Wheatmore brick works. This brick was photographed on the up platform on 27 September 2012.

On 22 November 2013 Freightliner's 66 593 passes the site of the station with a southbound Intermodal service. The down platform buildings, visible, have new tenants continuing to be well maintained with, hopefully, a secure future. Despite, again, being listed in the West Midlands action plan the reintroduction of the passenger service has yet to bear fruit.
