L3374. This bowstring girder bridge is believed to be located in Ashendon, Buckinghamshire. From the scaffolding still present beneath the structure it is clear that construction is not yet complete. The section of track it spans is also undergoing renovation, presumably as part of the widening operation put into practice after the collaborative agreement between the Great Central and Western Railway Companies. Double lines in the foreground appear to comprise a permanent line, but where they end a contractors line remains on the left hand side, alongside a workman's hut.
