Photo of an electric wagon (car) hoist that transfers wagons to a lower level track below & vice versa. Used to be at Moor St Station, Birmingham, England which was a very compact, space restricted inner city terminal.
There is, or was as of a few years ago, a magnificent hydraulic wagon lift at Huddersfield Station (ex LYR, ex LNWR) - all on Doric columns - looks like part of the Parthenon !! -
- right opposite the Leeds bound platform. Considerably larger than this electric one at Moor St. It served a massive (5?) storey goods shed/warehouse (still standing, or was a few years ago).
