Behind one of the properties in Brookway Hayle can be seen the abutment of a bridge which carried the branch line to the Explosive Works on Mexico Towans. The line which climbed in a curve across what is now a local park to gain height from the former Hayle Railway alignment. Access was via tracks laid on the former Hayle Railway along what is now King Georve V walk, The Explosive Works ceased to use this line after 1922.

The Hayle Railway from Hayle to Redruth passed along King George V Walk from which this photographs was taken, The line then took an almost straight route to the foot of the Angarrack Incline. The incline can just be ascertained to the right of the yellow fields on the distant hill. This incline was roped worked. On one unfortunate occasion the rope snapped and a group of ascending passengers suddenly found themselves returning to Hayle at high velocity!!!!
