A very unusual railway, which consisted of two sections one 1/25 mile long from Victoria st to Miles Platting (1:30 gradient), cable hauled powered by a winding engine. The second part was 2 miles long and went to Oldham it was 1 in 27 gradient and was locomotive powered but had a counter balanced train of wagons filled with sand.
