They very much did in the early days (probs up to around the time of Great War).

ECLP (English Clays Lovering & Pochin) the forerunner of the well-known ECC was formed in 1919 by some of the main producers of clay, no doubt to consolidate and streamline the Industry.

IF the history of China Clay Railways is of interest, I can do no better than recommend the book The Newquay Branch and Its Branches by John Vaughan
