Conwy tubular railway bridge RIBA16029

The view from Benarth towards Conwy Castle shows several interesting features. Tube no 2 has not yet been lifted into position. In front of the castle there is a large construction possibly of timber and a smoking chimney. Was this a winding house or some kind? It appears the tube is being assembled ready for the high tide.
