peterp, people might be interested to see two bent & rusting rails, rotting timbers & cobbles...if there was an open museum close by that could show & explain what the rusting rails were used for...I just guessed what they might be for, I didn't know till I looked them up.

Anyone know if there are any photos of the original in existence?

I like your perspective, Dan & think b&w does it justice. Nice one!

Not a picture of Wigan Pier tippler but something similar, which gives a good idea of usage, can be seen at http://www.historyworld.co.uk/photo.php?id=965&offset=0&sort=0&l1=Work&l2=Mining
