Scalefour News 188 featured an article by Tim Maddocks on 'The Buildings of Callow Lane' which included a picture of the Painswick Road Crossing on the ex-MR Tuffley Loop line in Gloucester. Although not a native of Gloucester I was aware of the line but was rather surprised at the name of the crossing. I live in Painswick Road and didn't think that the line crossed Painswick Road. A quick look on Google confirmed that and although it was indeed called Painswick Road Crossing, the road crossed was actually Tredworth Road, some distance away from here.
I spoke to Tim about this at Wells and said that next time I was at the site of the old crossing I would take a few pictures of how it looks from the same spot today.
For anyone interested in more details of the former Gloucester Eastgate Station and the Tuffley Loop or Painswick Road Crossing there's plenty to be found by Googling for it.
All the Best
