Bradford Junction - Trowbridge Track Renewals
Time away from sorting out the records today to go and take a look at a large track renewal job between Bradford Junction and Trowbridge. Approximately half a mile of the 'Down Trowbridge' line is being replaced with new ballast, sleepers and continuous welded rails. Such is the passage of time that I have photos of previous renewals along this section of line, these date from occupations in 1983, 1990, 1993 and 2021.
