At a meeting of the Cardiff Mental Hospital Committee the Town Clerk reported that the Cardiff Railway Company had given notice that they intended to seek powers to take six acres of the asylum estate for their railway. Dr Goodall said the asylum estate consisted of 186 acres, and they had no surplus land. They intended to keep 30 cows, and only 110 acres were available. If the railway company would put down a siding the hospital would be saved hundreds of pounds a year in haulage. The railway company had refused to put down a siding on the ground of expense. It was decided to ask the Parliamentary Committee to oppose the Bill seeking powers to take the land, and the medical superintendent and the city engineer were asked to submit a report on the question of a siding.
This was seen in a local newspaper in 1907.
