BRITISH   SUGAR

Ellasweet  Factory

The layout is a representation of a sugar beet factory in East Anglia.

In about 1960, a steam tank engine owned by British Sugar operates in the yard. British Rail delivers wagon loads of sugar beet, limestone, coal and materials used to process the beet to produce sugar.

Up to 4000 tonnes of beet per day could be processed/day making 700 tonnes of sugar and 400 tonnes of pulp for animal feed, and molasses at a factory during the annual campaign.

Beet pulp, bagged sugar and molasses are taken away for distribution to customers around Great Britain.
