L1830. This is a fine view of the viaduct at High Wycombe, seen here carrying the existing Great Western line prior to the construction of the Great Western & Great Central Joint Railway. In common with the rest of the Joint Line, the scheme involved widening the viaduct to accommodate an extra line of track. Work on this section of the Line (High Wycombe to Princes Risborough) was carried out by Mackay & Davies of Cardiff.
