From the top of the incline to meet-ings, the line consists of three rails, and the three rails joiningthe four rails at meetings by a V rail, obviate the necessity ofpoints, which would have been indispensable had there only beentwo rails on the top of the incline-meetings. From meetings, the four rails are continued to near the bottomof the incline, where there is a short length of single road fromthis point to the commencement of the full and empty roads(Figs. 3 and 4, Plate XXI.). The switches at the bottom of theincline are weighted, and are worked alternately by the loaded set Text Appearing After Image: Fig. 14.—Eastern Front of Drum-house. passing over them. At the bottom of the incline, there are alsofour sets of rails the full-wagon roads being on the low level andthe two empty-wagon roads adjoining each other on the highlevel.

All the sheaves are made of toughened steel, and the rollersbetween the rails are 9 inches in diameter by 10h inches wide(Figs. 5 and 6, Plate XXL), weigh 45 pounds, and run loose onthe spindle. The outside dimensions are 10J inches wide by 12Jinches in diameter on the flange.
