This tramway was originally built in the late 18th Century to serve the collieries around Loscoe and along the approx South Easterly route of Bailey Brook down to Loscoe Wharf on the erewash Canal at Langley Mill.The route is part traceable at Langley Mill to the right ofBailey Brook and Left of the Horse and Jockey pub. Most of the NE end of route was probably used as the later railway to Bailey Brook, Ormonde and Loscoe collieries.The route seems to have served Loscoe Colliery and in the Red River adjacent to the former colliery site West of the main road at the grid ref given are stone sleeper blocks, recent measurements show the plates may have been only 3.5 inches wide compared to the usual 4 inches of the Outram type, One sleeper block had a spike in the head of which was the same profile as those on the Little Eaton and Denby.
