Interestingly there is a picture in GNR Engine Sheds Vol.1 p. 84 of a steam crane emtying the wet ash pits at New England in 1937. There is only one line of wagons in reach and that include an LMS and LNER minerals by the look with end loading doors (a 7 plank and a 4 plank with very wide planks), the rest small 3 or 4 plank LMS wagons.

None marked loco coal, but apear to be railway company owned or hired wagons. Their proximity could be co-incidental but seems unlikely.

Re Breeze Blocks, these were designed by Hector Breeze using power station fly ash. I have first hand knowledge as Hector Breeze had a house in North Northumberland where the internal walls much to my apprentice electricians disgust were formed from the aforementioned blocks rather than the conventional lath and plaster.
Hi interested in the area served by 52D. also researching colliery wagonways from same area.
