Lee Moor Tramway Photo 2

Photo 2 again shows the passing loop where the double track comes together to form a three-rail arrangement. It was a three track (middle rail common) above the passing loop on this self acting incline, the upper wagons being loaded with clay are heavier and their descent pulled up the empty lower wagons. This mechanism was controlled by a winding drum at the top which was braked to control the speed of the wagons.
