This rail protected the top edge of the stone retaining wall to the kip on the west side. The stone wall has crumbled away. Well over grown with ferns and saplings.


These points were not removed during the demolition. The rails are the type with flat shoes as on the Arlescote Bridge. Perhaps too difficult to remove?  


Rear wall of the signal box at the top of the incline. The cast iron bracket housed a linkage to work the points at the top of the three rail section.


A few rollers survive.

Cast iron shoe with wrought iron bolts and a bit of sleeper. Not bad for 100 years out in the open.

This photo is not far from the above. These rails are flat bottomed.
The  timbers have been bolted to the sleepers to stop wagons running back down the incline.
