Other locations are in Mainz, Rio de Janeiro and Vadodara, India; the history of glass production in Mitterteich dates back to 1883. In 1930 the glass factory in Mitterteich was affiliated to the Grünenplan factory of SCHOTT AG. In 1885 Otto Schott invented the chemically resistant borosilicate glass, produced in tubing form. In 1911: a tubing glass was developed, well suited for the production of ampoules; the glass was registered in 1911 under the trade name FIOLAX and is still today one of SCHOTT AG most important products. After the Second World War, from 1947 to 1948 production of FIOLAX glass tubing began in Mitterteich. In 1961: SCHOTT decided to extend and modernize Mitterteich as the location for glass tubing production.

In 1969: representatives of what is now Schott Glaswerke and the Glaswerke Ruhr AG agreed upon the foundation of Schott-Ruhrglas GmbH. The administration and sales departments of Schott-Ruhrglas were transferred to Bayreuth in 1972 which at that time was the official seat of the company. In 1990: the company was renamed SCHOTT-Rohrglas. In 2001: a new administrative building was put into operation in Mitterteich and the locations Bayreuth and Mitterteich were merged in Mitterteich; the company produces glass tubing and profiles from approx. Sixty special glass types; the tubing is produced in outside diameters of 0.8 mm to 460 mm in lengths of 0.3 mm to 10 meters. In addition to the classical product ranges, technical tubing and pharmaceutical tubing, backlight glasses and tubing for solar heat as well as algae production in tubular photobioreactors are becoming important; the glass tubing is processed for a variety of applications, for example in pharmaceutics, lighting, environmental technology or microelectronics.

With an annual capacity of 65.000 tons, SCHOTT-Rohrglas GmbH is the biggest location of the Business Segment Tubing in the SCHOTT Group. SCHOTT AG Tubing

Craigie Waggonway

The Craigie Waggonway was a short lived mineral railway or'Bogey line' of just over a mile in length that transported coal from five or more coal pits on the Craigie Estate to Ayr where it was either used locally or was taken to the harbour in carts for export to Ireland. The waggonway had a lot in common with the Towerlands Tram Road in Irvine that carried coal from local coal pits and delivered it to an area close to the historic town centre. In 1855 Robert Brown is recorded as the owner of the first Craigie Pit and by 1857 Nos. 2 & 3 were operating. Although once owned by the Wallace family, involved in coal mining the estate had passed to James Campbell by 1855; the surrounding estates of Newton-on-Ayr, Blackhouse and Holmiston were all involved in coal mining and related activities. Craigie Pits Nos 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 lay on the route of the waggonway and the OS maps shows three of them linked to the'main line' by single or double track branches; the pits lay in the vicinity of the Ayr Racecourse.

In 1861 six coal pits were in operation on the Craigie Estates with five at least served by the waggonway. It is known that various sorts of sleepers were in use at the time on waggonways or tram roads, however on the nearby and contemporary Auchincruive Waggonway wood and stone blocks have been found, square or oblong stone blocks being favoured on many horse-worked lines as they did not interfere with the centre of the track; the waggonway gauge is not known. The'main line' was single track without passing loops. No indication of formal signalling is recorded and it is not clear what sort of rails and chairs were used. In keeping with other such waggonways the line was worked by horses with some manual handling; the waggonway did not reach the quayside however and coal may have been delivered to the town from here and a short distance away at the Ayr north quay stood the wooden and steel'hurries' where coal was tipped into the holds of the fleet of colliers and most transported to Ireland.

In 1857 four hurries are shown on the OS map, connected to the Whitletts Waggonway. A horse could haul between 7 coal waggons carrying 26 cwt each; the Craigie Waggonway reached as far as the rear of buildings that faced on to Content Street and on the OS map of 1857 a smithy is marked also indicating stables as both would be required for a horse draw line. The line started at Craigie Pit No.1 that had a road connection with the Braehead to Mainholm Road close to Dalmelling and curved down past Craigie Pits Nos 2 and 3 before passing one of the Craigie House lodges and crossing the railway before terminating at Content Street. The route was nearly level and was not unduly encumbered by drifting sand from the dunes that lay further west. Described as a'Tram Road' on the OS maps the line was on the level and no earthworks of any significance were required. Nothing survives at many of the various pits and associated spoil heaps, however a bridge crossed the Glasgow and South Western Railway line into Ayr close to the waggonway termination at Content Street and the remnants of this can be discerned.

Other contemporary waggonways existed locally such as the Auchincruive Waggonway and the nearby Holmiston Waggonway with sections of trackbed traceable on the south side of the River Ayr near the Holmiston lime kiln above Wallace's Heel Well. A short waggonway appears to have existed at Wallacetown as far back as 1775. A short tramway existed at the nearby Ayr Sawmills; the poet Robert Burns would have been familiar with the waggonways in Ayr however he never commented on them.
