It's interesting that some of the wing rails of the crossings are extended as check rails in the nearer crossings but that separate check rails are used on the further ones. Odd when the crossing angles appear to be quite similar or even identical.

Hi Forgot to say I think it's 8 crossings. Three in each of the complicated bits and the two obvious ones in the middle.

Martin.

  Certainly a complex  junction. I am trying to imagine the size of a layout that would require such track-work. A question though. The track-plan shown at the above reference site is a wee bit different to the track-work in the picture? I take it that they aren't contemporary?

Don't forget the 4 in the double crossover in the distance.
Certainly impressive.

There must be 8 diamonds in the double crossover in the distance. Not all visible?

Hi John.
Indeed. I was going by the signal box diagram, which does not quite match the picture.

If you want to cheat/confirm your answer then near top right corner of 25" OS 1937 survey will help a lot. The sequence going back in time is quite interesting: 1916, 1899, 1877. It looks like the answer might be 20 16, if the first link is indeed correct to match the photo.

Interest was raised as I used to live only  a few miles from there in the 70s but never realised there had been just so much railway activity there in the coal export heydays.
