These are just a very short walk away from Wolverhampton station. (I'm not sure if this is the right section for these photos so mods please move as you see fit).

Wonderful!  I want to do a canal scene on my layout - these pics will be invaluable.  I like the guardrail outside the houses.  I wonder if these are a modern addition (EH&S and all that) or whether these were ther in the day.

John,
they look as though they have been there a while. Even if they weren't the originals there might have been some sort of fence or railings to keep the horses on the towpath! 
Regards
David

Please pardon the hi-jack, but John, if you look at post 365 here

you'll see my take on a sluice gate, the 'winding up and down bit' [a technical phrase...] I did the raising and lowering mechanism with some old Coopercraft axleboxes and the toothed slide I made by squishing [more technicalities...] some plastic strip in the jaws of a big pair of electrician's pliers, hope that helps or give you some ideas...

[Nice piccies again, David]

Thanks Doug, there's a ton of stuff there.  I've bookmarked the link so I can pilfer your good work at leisure.
