Primary / Secondary References

Plate 128 is an image from 1964 looking south (and possibly taken from the three arch bridge (/scrca/structure-summary/269800)) by which time all traffic had ceased to use Crosby Garrett some eight years before the picture was taken.  By May 1964 the platforms (/scrca/structure-summary/269770) had been graded and the waiting shelter on the up platform had been removed.

For some reason the the down side shelter (/scrca/structure-summary/269730) had a reprieve.

The bridge in the background (/scrca/structure-summary/269660) had been reconstructed in 1923, using recovered wrought-iron lattice girders to replace timber lattice girders.

Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
