A view of the drum inside the SH5960 : A3 Drum House at the SH5960 : Top of the A3 incline. The wooden drum and cable can still be seen. The inclined planes were worked by counterbalancing the loaded descending waggons with the empty ascending waggon. A simple band brake on the drum, operated by the long lever on the left, was used to control the speed of the waggons.
