An impressive shot of the 1913 viaduct leading off from the main LMSR line on the north side of Bushey Station, which carried the electric railway on a sweeping curve towards Watford High Street Station and the branch line to West Watford and Croxley Green.
A classic image from The Age of Steam which is sure to appeal to Railway buffs, particularly those of London-Midland-Scottish persuasion!!

This is actually the "Tendring Hundred Railway". The line was realigned in 1929/1930 owing to coastal erosion of the original trackbed
