Welsh's Bridge (2)

This photograph appeared in the Highland Railway Journal No 40 with the following description by David Stirling:

"Following on from the centre-page illustration in the last issue, overleaf is one of the other photographs taken at the same time and kindly given to the Society by the Glasgow & South Western Association.

This shot is taken from the front of the signal box visible in the distance in the previous view and looks in the opposite direction, i.e. towards Nairn. The ticket platform is just visible beyond the bridge on the right. In the right foreground, the various lines come together onto the double track main line. Several signals control train movements towards the station, but only one up line signal is visible, the starter just before the bridge. This shares one arm with the splitting home for trains heading towards Inverness.

The point rodding is well protected by wooden trunking, but all the signal wires run at ground level and are not protected against snow. The ballast is also worth a look - not much stone but plenty of ash, well compacted. The positions of the chairs suggest that interlaced sleepers were used for the points, but it is difficult to be sure given the ballast covering."
