Beamish Museum: Pockerley Waggonway

The Pockerley Waggonway in Beamish Museum is in the south east corner of the site, outside and to the east of the tramway oval. The short line runs west-east, with a shed and the only platform at the western end. The shed tracks and the platform line converge into a single line around halfway along the waggonway, with a run-around loop taking up most of the eastern half.

The single platform is on the south side of a single track, which runs to the south of the shed and its feeder tracks. There's no station building, but a small domed hut is located near the middle of the platform.
