... what? Thankfully the on-line maps provides a fairly detailed diagram of what the train is aiming at.
In its place is a marina ...
... and the aerial view is inconclusive.
But with the coming of the railway, new sidings were added to allow coal to be exchanged with London and North Western Railway trains.
Nothing remains, of course, except a curve of undergrowth from bottom right and a thicker thicket where the sidings once stood.
What else can we see today?
Here is the original photo which inspired fbb's researches.
And here is a modern map shwoing the wharf, a footpath and two buildings on the north bank of the A5.
It is the second pink square after the roundabout that is the site of the original snap.
There were additional sidings here where the undergrowth is thickest.
Then to the right of the right hand house is a gateway.
The gateway was the entrance to the dock/rail interchange facility.
There are several pictures on-line of trains at this entrance/exit.
But beware on-line information. Minions Wharf is nearer the centre of Atherstone, just off Coleshill Road.
A small housing estate has the name Minions Court ...
... but the wharf itself is disused and dilapidated.
The text description of Minions Wharf ...
... is actually a description of Baddesley Wharf!
The lock and cottage referred to above are close to Baddesley Wharf but there is no A5 embankment in sight!
But it is all on-line!
Baddesley Colliery closed in 1989; but fbb has not yet found a date for the last trips along the sidings to Baddesley Wharf.
Maybe somebody out there knows the answer.
