L2957. Looking north towards bridge no. 409, a girder structure that was built to carry the Cosby to Willoughby road across the London Extension in Leicestershire. The main line trackbed is still in its infancy, with a section of contractor's temporary railway running parallel with a single line of newly laid permanent way. Just visible along the cutting is bridge no. 408, a three arch brick occupation overbridge.
