Girder bridge spanning the Great Western & Great Central Joint Line at High Wycombe

Girder bridge spanning the Great Western & Great Central Joint Line at High Wycombe

L1829. A girder overbridge spans a chalk cutting on the Great Western & Great Central Joint Line near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. On the left are a set of contractor's temporary rails, and on the right is a section of the old Great Western line. Although these rails are set to standard gauge width, this was originally a line of broad gauge track. The business of the Butterley Co. Ltd., the name of the firm painted on the bridge, is sadly unknown. Built by Mackay & Davies of Cardiff, this part of the Joint Line ran from High Wycombe to Princes Risborough.
