And a rather special bridge too Ken, the Tamar railway bridge was one of the last projects Brunell worked on. At present there is a very major work being done, the paint work is being stripped right back and the bridge being repainted in it's original colours I believe. Best of all on the other side IT'S KERNOW ( CORNWALL ) !!!!. Great shot Ken , taken from another viewpoint than normal.
