BIK Bickershaw Colliery Branch

   0.00	Springs Branch No 1 Junction with CGJ5 (5.18)
   0.33	Platt Bridge Junction with ETW (11.63)
   1.63	Bickershaw West Junction with HJL (10.31)
   1.64	Bickershaw West Junction with ETW (10.32)
   2.10	Bickershaw South Junction with link to ETW (0.27 long)
   3.32	Bickershaw colliery
  (3.44)	junction with Plank Lane branch
  (3.68)	PLANK LANE

Note that it is possible that this route is possibly split BIK1/BIK2 at 1.44, but this has not been confirmed.  It also appears that there is some overlap with BIK3, 0.33-1.64 is also 10.32-11.63 in ETW and mileages above 1.64 are in PLB.
