Cornbrook viaducts
Cornbrook viaducts
Parallel viaducts carry the Metrolink and railway across the Bridgewater Canal at Cornbrook. The Metrolink viaduct was originally built by the Cheshire Lines Committee in 1880, and comprises plate and lattice girders. Such modern materials were not available to the Manchester South Junction and Altrincham Railway in 1849 when they built their traditional and beautiful cast-iron single span. The train is a class 142 'Pacer' DMU operated by Northern Rail.
