On the towed equipment side, there are only two wagons: a "giraffe" tipping wagon and a flat ballast.
The spoil from the shaft was emptied into the tipping wagon which was then pushed along the spoil heap on the tracks to the end where it was tipped off, thus forming the characteristic 'finger' spoil heaps of most small Black country pits.
Trains are operated during special events or on major operating days using two small carriages built on ex-tipping wagon chassis.
