Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An industrial railway is a type of private railway used exclusively to serve a particular industrial site, either entirely within a logging, mine, agricultural, or factory property, or connecting the site to public freight networks.Industrial railways were once very common, but with the rise of road transport, their numbers have greatly diminished. An example of an industrial railway would transport bulk goods, for example clay from a quarry or coal from a mine, to an interchange point, called an exchange siding, with a main line railway, onwards from where it would be transported to its final destination.
