The cutting is through red sandstone, is almost vertical and fairly close to the track. You've definitely made a good start

Whilst on the subject of busses, the bus from Birmingham to Worcester, the 144 run by First Worcestershire (Formerly Midland Red West), connects several place on the map. Starting at Worcester Bus Station, which is effectively immediately south west of Worcester Foregate Street given the scale of the map, it passes under the Foregate Street bridge, where in real life the first stop on the route is, then runs through Fernhill Heath, Droitwich & Wychbold to Bromsgrove Bus Station, which unlike the train station, is in the centre of the town. From there it goes onto Sidemoor and Catshill (as in hill of Cats), where some of the buses (numbered 144a) terminate. The rest go onto Marlbrook, Rubery, Longbridge, Northfield & Selly Oak. They terminate in central Birmingham on the Smallbrook Queensway (just south of Birmingham New Street). To add even more authenticity, Worcester's bus depot is just to west of Shrub Hill, off the road linking it to Foregate Street. The route is also known as the Salt Road. Despite First buses usually being white, pink or blue, and Midland Reds being red, the buses on this route are green.
