Other railway walks:
The Dundee & Newtyle Rlwy Walks Opened in 1831 the route had three inncline planes. The first was from
the terminal station on Ward Street, up the Dundee Law, where there was also a tunnel. The second was the
Balbeuchley incline at Rosemill and the third at Hatton that ran down to Newtyle station. It was also the very
first passenger train service in Scotland. Worked by Horse over the levels until the first steam engine was
purchased in 1833. Came under the Caladonian Railway with it's terminal moved to Dundee West station.
Passengers service ended in 1952 and the line totally closed in the mid 60's. The inclines were by-passed in
The Cromford & High Peak Incline railway in Derbyshire has been luckier in having much of it's buildings,
including an Engine House preserved. This is what could have happened with the D&N, indeed, should have
happened with at least one of the D&N inclines. However, the C&H gives an excellent comparison
of what the D&N would have looked like, albeit the inclines were only single track.
