The historical development of underground transport in the U.K., is examined. The Reid Report of 1945 recommended that subsidiary rope haulage from the face to the main line system be replaced by conveyors and that locomotive haulage or conveyors should be introduced as the main system of transport in new and reconstructed mines. The need for fast reliable transport systems has not diminished over the intervening thirty years.
