SO8218 : Docks Branch No. 3 viaduct, Gloucester

taken 4 years ago, near to Gloucester, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Docks Branch No. 3 viaduct, Gloucester
Docks Branch No. 3 viaduct, Gloucester
This viaduct once carried the GWR branch from Over to Llanthony Docks. The branch was built to carry double broad gauge track in 1854 (converted in 1872 to standard gauge). This bridge, which was once a swing bridge, only ever carried single track. One thing not apparent in this view is that the track is still in place on the bridge, despite it being 25 years or so (at least) since the last train crossed.
