Corngreaves Halt
         The goods only Corngreaves Branch ran 4¾ miles from Cradley Railway Station to Witley Colliery (1875-1920). When the colliery closed the Branch was cut back to Corngreaves Road Crossing and closed in 1965. I have twisted history with a basic passenger service being introduced in 1905 with halts being served by steam railcars that morphed into to auto trains and then diesel multiple units.
