While I was the NRM I noticed a newly made siding platform at the museum North Eastern corner which got me asking what is this going to be used for. The information I got is this:  The position of the new siding is were about the original Jacketts siding was. The Jacketts Flour Mill building can be seen behind this siding platform with the old Jacketts sign still on side of the mill building. 
The NRM are going to run Redhen railcars between the Commercial Road viaduct, Outer Harbor Line Junction with the Port Dock Line to the new Jackets Siding inside the National Rail Museum in July, coinciding with the school holidayís day-out with Thomas week from Saturday the 7th of July 2012, to Sunday the 15th of July 2012 .
