Yard offices (also known as weigh houses) are small buildings that were used for the administration associated with operating a goods yard. The railway employee(s) working in each yard office controlled and recorded each person and vehicle entering and leaving the goods yard. In most cases within the SCRCA, yard offices also housed the measuring part of an adjacent weighbridge (i.e. a large weighing scale capable of weighing carts and other road vehicles, both with and without their loads).
