Shortly after the construction of the WLR, and before completion of the WLR's wagon, enquiries were made about the possibility of moving a load of timber from the front drive to the patio. The WLR management agreed to build a temporary line for this purpose, and to accelerate the completion of their wagon for use on the timber railway.
The railway was built using 25mm x 50mm rectangular hollow section steel, resting in sleepers made from 3" x 3" fence posts with 25mm wide slots cut into them to take the rail.
The second timber railway included an extension along the back patio to the log store - access to the extension being via a somewhat rudimentary sector plate

With traffic on the parent WLR still very light, it was the need for a second timber railway which finally prompted the chief engineer to complete the WLR's wagon.
The timber didn't arrive until a few days later - four wagon loads of timber were moved in total.
No photos exist of the third timber railway, but it was built on similar lines to the second, and again four wagon loads of timber were moved.
The fourth timber railway didn't use the sector plate, and wasn't extended along the drive. Seven wagon loads of timber were moved.
