The Xmas Bridge


Remember my X is for Xmas post  showing the bridge that was being demolished well this is what it used to look like.
And this is how it looks now.
Not quite the same as Brunell built it.

  3. I agree with Dana.

    In the top photo, each side is a different colour. Did the right side have something over the bricks?

    1. If you look you can see one side is wider (left) that is because when Brunell built the GWR it was broad guage (wide track). When the line was widened to what you see now the lines were a standard guage which was narrower. The darker side is the newer line.

  4. I guess it's what they call progress but sometimes you just have to wish they'd leave things alone or restore sympathetically. Shame.
