Building the last Main Line Railway

Rugby to Barby: gcrcs139

Looking north towards bridge No 455, the structure carrying Hillmorton Road over the new station

Looking north towards bridge No 455 which carried Hillmorton Road over the site of the new station. Built by T Oliver & Son this bridge would provide passengers with access to the station's 600 ft long island platform. As can be seen, the main excavation of the line has yet to take place. On the left are some of the brick arches that were built to support the main station building which was constructed as an additional part of the bridge. Note the vertical timber panels being employed as temporary parapets on the side of the overbridge.
