The bridges of Monmouthshire county
The bridges of Monmouthshire county
Railway bridges over the Wye at Monmouth. The cast iron bowstring bridge was on the line from Ross on Wye, while the viaduct to the left of the shot was on the Wye Valley line to Chepstow. Monmouth Troy station was at the junction between these two lines, but despite this there was never any real attempt to run them as a single branch line: one always had to change trains at Monmouth Troy and wait for a Wye Valley line train, possibly contributing to the pre - Beeching closure of both lines in January 1959.
