Excellent photographs. I remember the Locos using the track at the gates but, I can't figure out how the works loco used the track. When I worked at the works the locos back shunted on the track behind the forge pond, then into the coal yard. I do remember back in 1950 a fair ground being held there for a week, so the track was not used then. I shall research some older maps; they should be on the forum some where.
Ike, There wasa fair at the Globe each year. The track was separated from the fair by a permanent fence. I believe that in my fathers time plays were performed in that ground, I recall "mria in the Red Barn" or something similar. Of course Whitehorns Balcksmith was next the the Globe. I took our horse there to be shoed
The limestone i assume came from Trevil down the tram road as we called it in the 40's, to the iron works. The track shown in the photo looks like standard 4'-10'' gauge to me and I do remember works loco at the gates in the 40's. I just wondered why the track was used when limestone was no longer needed when the iron works closed. Only conclusion I can come to is that; the loco's reversed along the track for some reason.
