Quite a simple thing which hauled a small narrow gauge tub up a frame and tipped it directly via an open chute into the loco bunker?

If so that's a 'Stothert and Pitt' coal hoist quite widely used at smaller LNER depots from sometime in the 1930s. Also known as the 'Stranraer' coal hoist on the LMS I believe, from the first location it was installed on that company's system.

There was a kit, from Walsworth Models if memory serves.

Can't help with the coal loader , but a great prototype to model, a nice small and compact shed .
Are you building the station aswell or just the mpd .
Being a Barnsley lad is love to know how you get on .

Being an ex Barnsley boy-I have fond memories of standing at jumble lane watching the steam loco's, when I was a small lad in the early 50's.
I was always keen to go and look every time mum took me to Barnsley on the local 'Tracky' bus.
I can even remember travelling by train over the arches above the bus station in 1953,from Barnsley Court house station to Blackpool at Feast week.
This line joined the exchange line further down the track.
This is an interesting project ,the shed and crossing would look good in model form.
Good luck with it.
