Jenny Lind close-up

On an old and unused railway bridge over New England Road a train has appeared.

Here is a close-up of it:

The train seems to be on the bridge, but I guess it was considered too heavy to be erected on it.  Instead it is mounted on a huge steel section which is cantilevered out from one of the bridge abutments.

Jenny Lind was a Swedish opera singer in mid 1800s, and her name was given to the first of 10 steam locos made in Leeds for the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway.

The square steel tube is bolted to concrete set into the ground at the end of the bridge.
