Although this branch of the railway went into the gas works it is understood that it was not used very much. Coal came into the works by boat at a huge jetty on the site of the QE Pier. The railway seems to have been used mainly for byproducts leaving the works. Perhaps someone who worked there can tell us if this is so.
The railway line remained while the Dome was being built in the 1990s but, rather than trains, it was used as a road for lorries going in and out of the site.
