Girder overbridge crossing the line near Willoughby, Warwickshire

Girder overbridge crossing the line near Willoughby, Warwickshire

L2330. Bridge No. 474, a girder occupation structure built by T. Oliver & Son as part of Contract No.4 (Rugby to Woodford) to carry a track over the London Extension near Willoughby. Although the trackbed is flat and the line has been ballasted, these are temporary contractor's rails that would quickly be lifted and re-laid elsewhere. Note the brick work parapet: a relatively unusual feature for a girder bridge on the Last Main Line.
