Snippet Detail

Figure 85 is the track layout at Beaty's Siding, based upon information from a Midland Railway survey of 1912.  This is another example of a small private siding controlled from a small lever frame.  The key to the frame was kept at the Howe and Company's Siding cabin, and the siding was for the use of the Crown Brick and Tile Co.  It was out of use in 1932 and recovered in 1935.  The narrow guage tramway passing beneath bridge No 342 (/location-summaries/structure-303160) connected the brickworks to the clay pit.
