Langstone IOW – Langstone ferry terminal

This was the implementation at Langstone, based on that at the Firths of Forth and Tay. See article http://haylingbillyheritage.org/uncategorised/prototype-for-brading-langstone-train-ferry/.

the main differences were;

1. the engine used for the winching of the bridge section was enclosed in a building and

2. only two railway tracks were catered for.

Note: Locomotives were not allowed on the bridge section and all movements of the wagons was by cable controlled by the static winch engine.
