Railway Bridge Replacement

For many years I worked as a Civil Engineer specialising in bridges. I retain an interest and snap anything interesting I see on my travels. In this case it was only a couple of miles from home where a railway bridge is to be replaced at Patterton Station. The new bridge has been assembled adjacent to the old one and will be lifted or slid into place, probably over a weekend. The old bridge has low headroom and has been struck a number of times as can be seen by damage to the steelwork.
