Description

This was not a true junction, but exists in the Act for the new line which replaced the Hatton Incline approach to Newtyle [1st] from the south.

The junction was probably in use for a short time for construction materials.

The location is south east of Hatton Engine House where the old alignment and new alignment meet.

The new formation largely obliterated the original line.

The overgrown cutting of the lines remains.
