The Pockerley Waggonway in Beamish Museum is in the south east corner of the site, outside and to the east of the tramway oval. The short line runs west-east, with a shed and the only platform at the western end. The shed tracks and the platform line converge into a single line around halfway along the waggonway, with a run-around loop taking up most of the eastern half.
