SKU: WSHSD_2022_14_308 Categories: ,


Ivatt 2MT Class No. 41249 (built 1949) crosses Bridge 185 near Stourpaine with the two-carriage 4pm Down service in 1956.

The abutments and bridge span have been built for double track but the flood arches are single track width.

This part of the line is now the North Dorset Trailway. Only the south-east abutment and flood arches (on the left) survived and a new abutment plus footbridge opened here in 2010.
