Other Info:
The track is listed in the AW 1962 list of cinder tracks and was attached to the nearby Vulcan Foundry which still exists but not sure if the track still does. From the depiction of the track on the map, it seems to be oblate (flattened circle) with a straight extended at both ends. There used to be a Vulcan AC but they went out of existence in the 1950s and the track is unlikely to have been used much since then.
