SO8315 : Tuffley Junction

taken 12 years ago, near to Tuffley, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Tuffley Junction
Tuffley Junction
This used to be four tracks. The right hand two line were the former GWR main line to Paddington, whilst the left hand pair were the ex-LMS main line to Bristol. Whilst the two routes ran parallel south from here to Standish Junction, there was no connection between them at this point. The LMS line curved left beyond the bridge in the distance along the now abandoned route into Gloucester Eastgate Station. Just beyond the point at which the bank on the left finishes a single track branch from Hempsted and the Gas Works converged with the LMS lines. The tracks were reduced to the current two in the 1960s and the route to Eastgate closed in the 1970s.
