A sneak peek at the Station Hall workshop

Although it might feel like the Station Hall redevelopment has been quiet of late, there has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes. The exhibits are now being produced, and this week we visited our propmakers’ workshop to see progress so far. Here are some images of the installations that will be going into Station Hall in early January.

This stack of boxes will be installed in the Goods Depot section of Station Hall. It will house images and stories that showcase the working life of a goods depot.

And here's an image that inspired us - Birmingham Moor Street goods depot in 1939.

And here is a prototype of one of the luggage stacks. The suitcases have all been donated by visitors. We'll use them to house the great stories that people have told us about their travelling experiences.

Keep looking out for more updates in January, when we’ll fill you in on all the new objects and exhibits being installed in Station Hall.
