I will consider of your suggestion to make a private branch railway to join the Great Western Railway – I am afraid it would be an expensive undertaking the length of it would be about one and a half miles mostly but not entirely through my own land but some would have to be purchased I suppose As to the transport of ore to Staffordshire, if you will be so good as to inform me of the amount of the terminal charges, I shall then be able to sum up the total expence of carrying the ore to Staffordshire there by the Great Western Railway – and also I should be glad to know the charge made for the use of the Great Western Railway Company’s trucks for 129 miles in case the ore is conveyed in them – Would there be any terminal charge here with respect to ore passing from my private railway, if it should be connected, on to the Great Western Railway.
