In this video Keith Steele, retired railway signlman, explains an incident to Robin Walker at Soho and Winson Green in the 1950s that could have resulted in a serious accident.

The geographic location of Winson Green can be seen on a current OS Map. The map will place this location at the centre of the map panel, roll the mouse over the icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.
