Orchard Bungalow level crossing

A view of Orchard Bungalow Crossing from the North, with Bewdley North's Up Distant visible in the distance.

At this level crossing, the railway crosses the private driveway of the titular bungalow. The crossing is located close to milepost 138½ between Bewdley and Northwood Halt, just to the north of the Bewdley North Up Distant signal.

On 9 October 2003 D3586 hauled a revenue-earning freight load of roof trusses from Kidderminster to the bungalow. The trusses were too large to pass under the bridge carrying the former Wyre Forest Line over Northwood Lane, but were just able to fit through Bewdley Tunnel.[1]
