This diagram from John Thompson (February 2014), shows the track arrangement at the bottom of the incline, as it existed prior to closure, which he has drawn from memory and is not to scale.

He says "The wheels of the descending carriage simply kicked the blade across to 'make its road' into the platforms. The carriage then ascended up the same side of the tracks as it had come down".

1965 - layout of the points. (John Thompson)
