LOCOMOTIVES ACT, 1861.

24 & 25 Vict. c. 70.

An Act for regulating the Use of Locomotives on

Turnpike and other Roads, and the Tolls to be levied on such Locomotives and on the Waggons and Carriages drawn or propelled by the same.

[1st August, 1861.] WHEREAS the use of locomotives is likely to become common on turnpike and other roads : and whereas the general Turnpike and Highway Acts and many of the local Turnpike Acts do not contain any provisions for regulating the use of locomotives on the roads to which they respectively apply, nor do they authorize the levying of tolls upon or in respect of any locomotive using the roads, or upon or in respect of any waggon or carriage drawn by locomotives: and whereas under and by virtue of certain local Turnpike Acts tolls may be levied upon locomotives and other engines drawing or propelling waggons or carriages, or upon the waggons or carriages so drawn or propelled, which are or may be prohibitory of the use of locomotives on the roads to which the said Acts respectively apply: and whereas the weighing clauses in the general Turnpike Acts have not been framed in anticipation of traffic by locomotives, and are in many respects ill adapted to the profitable carrying of goods, or to the levying of just and adequate tolls upon waggons or carriages drawn by locomotives : and whereas it is desirable that the use of locomotives

on turnpike and other roads should be regulated by aniform general provisions, and that tolls should be levied upon such locomotives and the waggons or carriages drawn by such locomotives upon turnpike roads : Be it therefore enacted by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords spiritual and temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

1 (a). From and after the passing of this Act all taken after trustees, corporations, commissioners, and other per

sons acting under and in execution of any existing general or local Turnpike Road Act or public

Act shall demand and take tolls not exceeding the tolls following; that is to say :For every locomotive (b) propelled by any power

containing within itself the machinery for its own propulsion, such a toll for every two tons weight or fractional part of every two tons weight that such locomotive shall weigh as shall be equal to the toll or tolls by their respective Acts made payable for every horse drawing any waggon, wain, cart, or carriage with wheels of a width similar to those of such locomotive; or in the case of a toll by any such Act made payable being charged on the horse or horses drawing any such waygon, wain, cart, or carriage, without reference to the width of the wheels thereof, then such a toll for every two tons or fractional part thereof that such locomotive shall weigh as shall be equal to one horse drawing such waggon,

, wain, cart, or carriage; which tolls respectively shall be payable so often as tolls made payable as aforesaid for such waggon, wain, cart, or carriage

Act '81, s. J. shall be payable at the same gate: provided always, that if the wheels of such locomotive shall rest upon any shoe or other bearing the surface of which shall bear upon the ground so as to prevent the wheels coming in contact therewith, such and the same tolls only shall be demanded and payable as if the wheels thereof

were of a width similar to such shoe or bearing: For every waggon, wain, cart or carriage drawn (6)

or propelled by any locomotive, for each pair of
wheels thereof such a toll as shall not exceed the
toll by their respective Acts made payable for
two horses drawing any waggon, wain, cart, or
carriage with wheels of a similar width, and for
every additional wheel thereof one half toll in
addition to the said toll; or in the case of a toll
by any such Act made payable being charged on
the horse or horses drawing any such waggon,
wain, cart, or carriage, without reference to the
width of the wheels thereof, then such a toll for
each wheel as shall be equal to one horse drawing
such waggon, wain, cart, or carriage; which said
toll or tolls shall be payable so often as the toll
made payable as aforesaid for such waggon,
wain, cart, or carriage drawn by horses shall be

payable at the same gate :
Provided always that in every case where the wheels
of any waggon, wain, cart, or carriage shall not all be
cylindrical, as described in the Act 3 Geo. 4, c. 126,
s. 9, the toll payable in respect thereof shall be one

half more.

(a) This section, it will be observed, is confined to roads which are governed by General or Local Turnpike Road Acts or Public Bridge Acts. Consequently in all other cases locomo
