Sweet old abandoned rail bridge, we see them like this in Australia but usually ours are made of timber..

Thanks! This bridge is in the heart of town & was built after a tunnel was built. At the time, 4 different lines converged here. The line on this side of the tracks wanted a more direct connection to the route on the other side of the tracks, so they wouldn't have to use any of Southern Railways tracks. They built a tunnel under Southern's tracks and this bridge was built over the tracks leading to the tunnel, as they still wanted to maintain a connection to Southern. After several mergers, it was decided that this connection was no longer needed.
