Hi all

If you ever watched the series 'The Garden Railway', you may recall the episode that discussed bridges. In that episode Mark Found paid a visit to Richard Ince, to whom he referred as 'The Mad Bridge Man of Hampshire'. Well here is a short video sequence of an open day held at that very same location back in September 2003.

Mad Bridge Man indeed. At 4pm that afternoon he broke off from being the genial host, stripped to his underwear and went for a swim with his Koi carp!

Hope you enjoy this...

Too right: He would doubtless have been gratified to know that at least somebody recognised that the Saltash Bridge was meant, indeed designed, to be dual track - not the single-track bottleneck it is today!

Mark, that's an interesting pic for an avatar. Where and what is it please?

The loco looks like a Decauville-Bagnall cross.
