Ballater: The wooden extension to the Ballater platform was actually built under the Great North of Scotland Railway period of leasing the Aboyne and Braemar Railway (Deeside Line) when the railway was extended under the Turnpike road to Braemar. It is generally held that no train ever passed under the bridge but is it likely that 'the railway' would invest in a remodelling of the Carriage Dock and other sidings at Ballater Station, which, according to railway accounting records is what happened in 1870, and then never use it?

Monmouth Troy: Just off the Eastern end of the platforms at Monmouth Troy, the railway split to head for Ross-on-Wye (left) or Chepstow (right). The PW hut is original, the brick gatepost more modern. The viaduct on the Chepstow line is deteriorating rapidly, and should be visited sooner rather than later - so long as the steel gates at the station end are open!
