Red Hill bridge
Red Hill bridge
In fact there are two bridges here, the later (nearer) one being built when the Midland Railway quadrupled its main line to London to cope with the enormous coal traffic from Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire.
The train passing over is a 'visitor' - Cross Country services which normally run direct between Derby and Birmingham were deing diverted via Leicester due to planned Sunday engineering works.
The junction here between the Rivers Soar (in foreground) and Trent also represent a 3-way boundary between Nottinghamshire (right hand bank), Derbyshire (far bank) and Leicestershire (near bank).
