Contractor's rails and large ballast near Finmere, Buckinghamshire

L1584. Contractor's railway 'through Finmere Wood' (S.W.A. Newton's notes), Buckinghamshire, circa 1897. For temporary rails, these tracks are relatively well laid and maintained. On the left of the photograph is a bed of large ballast, put down in preparation for the permanent way. This section of the line (Contract No.6, Brackley to Quainton Road) was constructed by Walter Scott & Co. of Newcastle upon Tyne.
