Axedale Racecourse Platform was not part of the original line construction. However, it was siuated at the crest of the rise in Cutting 49. The cutting necessitated the closure of an unnamed road at the top of the cutting. A track and two Allotment Lines were crossed before the line exited the general area of the platform.
